Happy August! A vote for you :)

Every year, thousands of kids start school with no books in the classroom, poor school libraries, and no books of their own. Reader to Reader gives out hundreds of thousands of books to under-resourced schools, libraries and children, but the need is especially strong at the start of the school year. They need YOUR help to get books into the hands of children who truly need the power of reading in their lives.

Please consider giving what you can to this important cause. If you can't give now, join the team and spread the word!
Thank you,
Kat

June vote for you!

The summer is here, and school is out! But even though students are enjoying the sun, we're still working hard to bring resources to low-income schools, libraries, and communities. Reader to Reader's work doesn't stop with the school year, and becomes even more important. More than half of the achievement gap between lower- and higher-income youth comes from unequal access to summer learning opportunities. Low-income kids can lose up to two months of reading ability over the summer, while middle-class children make slight gains. Now more than ever it is essential that books are available to low-income children. Help us make this possible with your support today.

Thank you,
Kat

A spring vote for you!

With all the headlines screaming disaster and heartache, it's easy to get disheartened. Reader to Reader has supported schools damaged by tornadoes, public libraries devastated by flooding, and communities deeply affected by local tragedy. But each day we see examples of how much good is out there. That goodness is not always in the headlines. Sometimes, it's tucked quietly away, but it's there, and is the very reason we do this work--to bring books and other resources to the next generation that so richly deserves them.

Reader to Reader needs your help to get books in the hands of children across the country. Will you donate or join our team? Your support makes a difference!

Thanks,
Kat

Happy January vote! Wishing you and your projects the very best this year.
On Thanksgiving Day 2012, someone broke in to Hopi Mission School in Kykotsmovi Village, AZ and stole all their laptops. Without them, students have little access to technology, research, Internet and essential learning tools. No one deserves to lose learning opportunities and resources because of someone else's hurtful actions.
Reader to Reader is raising funds to not only replace these computers, but to keep them safe in a locking cart and prevent any future theft. If you can, please help me support the children of Hopi Mission School today. If you donate $17 or more, Crowdrise will automatically enter you for a raffle to get a $100 donation to your cause (and a $100 Roozt gift card!)

CROWDRISING SINCE: May 04, 2010
Stuff About Me:

Time to update again ;) ...

Some random facts about me:

1.  I follow Jesus Christ.

2.  I'll try just about anything once.

3.  I definitely enjoy extreme sport activities (bungee jumping, rock climbing, whitewater), but Ferris wheels scare me.

4.  Grabbing coffee with friends is probably one of my favorite pastimes. 

5.  I can't emphasize enough how terrible my aim usually is... if I throw something at one of my sisters, they won't even flinch.

6.  I love bonfires, and I think s'mores taste better without the chocolate. 

7.  I've been told since 8th grade that I look like Ally McBeal... for a long time, I didn't even know who that was.

8.  I LOVE my 4 younger sisters... including my 4-yr-old foster sis! 

9.   I spend most of my time working in a youth ministry and coordinating events with 4others (www.4others.org) to fight poverty.

10.  I can't stand the fact that 1 child dies every 5 seconds from hunger-related causes, especially because those deaths are COMPLETELY preventable.  It only takes 24 cents to feed a child for a day!    

Note: When you hunger, not only does it take away your chances of survival, but it also takes away the quality of your life.  Every day is consumed by the need to find food.  There is no time for education, work, or play.  "The cycle is vicious--the poor are hungry and their hunger keeps them poor." 

On April 27 & 28, we're hosting our city's 2nd Food 4others MobilePack. This is a two-day event where we hope to bring together 1,100 volunteers to hand-pack 225,000 meals for starving children in developing countries.  Between now and then, we're raising the neccessary $54K for these meals.

Check out my project to help make this happen: http://www.crowdrise.com/endhungerfast/fundraiser/april
