August vote for you! Did you know that 60% of low-income children do not own a single book? School and public libraries are their only source of reading material, yet budget cuts leave many libraries unable to buy new books, or even without a full-time librarian. Reading is so important to a kid's education. Would you help Reader to Reader bring books to low-income schools and libraries across the country? A $10 donation sends a much-needed box of books. If you can't give, please join our team and ask others to help change the world, one book at a time. Thank you!

Summer is here, and I’…
Summer is here, and I’m sure you’re looking forward to enjoying its glory. (I am!) But did you know that kids forget 1-3 months of learning during the summer? That’s 1-3 months of what they learned the year before, needing to be retaught in the fall before they can even start learning new material. This summer learning loss is worse in disadvantaged children, and widens the achievement gap further.
Summer learning programs are important to keep children’s brains active and engaged. Reader to Reader runs three summer programs, including one with both parents and children to increase family literacy. We have a lot of fun, and we learn A LOT!
Please help us keep summer learning fun and engaging for low-income families in western Massachusetts by joining our team, spreading the word and if you can, donating to Reader to Reader. Your support helps us keep kids reading, learning and succeeding!

Happy April, CR friend!
Reader to Reader is auctioning off some great artwork to raise funds for our many international programs, thanks to our friends at the ART4GOOD Foundation. If you like art, books, or education, stop by and take a look at the 35 beautiful pieces available! http://bit.ly/HjFtMO
You get a beautiful piece of art, and RTR can:
-provide special education programs for children in the Dominican Republic;
-teach women to read in Nigeria;
-keep abandoned children in childhood through reading and improve theater in rural China;
-sponsor Haitian kids to finish school;
-continue to grow our public library in a coffee-farming Costa Rican village;
AND support many other programs that do wonderful work in India, Mexico, Nicaragua, Kosovo, Ghana and other countries.
If art isn’t your thing, you can still support our programs by donating or joining our team. Take a look at my projects to see more of what we do.
All the best, and HAPPY READING,
Kat

Happy March! This is a month…
Happy March! This is a month of really awesome holidays. International Women's Day, International Reading Day, Dr. Seuss Day, St Patrick's Day.. and who could forget Alien Abduction Day?

In honor of these wonderful holidays, many of which support women and reading, To Mother With Love is announcing a $500 challenge grant from a local donor. Every dollar donated to our project, up to $500, will be matched! Please give to support the women of Ikenne, Nigeria, who have for so long sacrificed for their children to become educated, but cannot read themselves. If you are unable to donate this month, please pass along this opportunity or become a team member. Thank you for your support!

Happy February, Crowdrise friend! Thank you for your support, through your donations, votes, advocacy and friendliness. You probably know all about the amazing promos that CR runs. Right now, I think the most awesome is the chance to win an iPad 2. Every time you donate $26, you are entered to win.

Your $26 donation to a Reader to Reader project would help us send 2 boxes full of books to an under-resourced library here in the states, or support special education in the DR, or get a women's school built in Nigeria, or get books to families in transition... there are plenty of choices and who knows, you might get lucky!

Happy reading,
Kat

CROWDRISING SINCE: Aug 15, 2010
Stuff About Me:
I'm a seventeen year old who likes to help others. The problem is i have no job so i can't really donate a ton of money to charities all the time. Therefore, i'm doing the next best thing - raising money on crowdrise! by far one of the coolest websites i've ever seen. :)
Here's some info on my project:
In the last month, due to flooding, 20 million people have been left displaced - their homes are wrecked, their crops are destroyed, and their family members are missing, or dead. Not only that, but terrible diseases are beginning to spread, which can lead to even more deaths. The world has been slow to respond to these people's agony and distress. The commitment per person is only $3.00, whereas in Haiti, it was $475.00 per person. Please donate to save the millions of people that need your help. Even a dollar will go a long way in this case. All proceed will go to unicef!

According to UN Cheif, Ban Ki-Moon: "Village after village - washed away. Roads, bridges, homes - destroyed. Crops and livelihoods - wiped out. I met women and men with very little in the best of times, awash in a sea of suffering,"


** my other message to everyone is to KEEP HELPING HAITI AS WELL. just because it is no longer in the news does not mean that the problem's that they are facing there have disappeared. it's extremely important to keep the Haitians in our prayers, and to keep sending money and supplies to the people of that nation. **
