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

Happy New Year! A vote from me to you, and remember to find the time to read something this year, in between all the wonderful work you do!

"These are not books, lumps of lifeless paper, but minds alive on the shelves. From each of them goes out its own voice... and just as the touch of a button on our set will fill the room with music, so by taking down one of these volumes and opening it, one can call into range the voice of a man far distant in time and space, and hear him speaking to us, mind to mind, heart to heart." ~Gilbert Highet

Stuff About Me:
Hello there friends

My name is Glen and thanks for visiting my Crowdrise page.

This is an opportunity to all come together and do something meaningful for others.

Last year I was in Kenya and had a fantastic experience. I spent the whole time with the Maasai people of the Kuku community in the Chyulu Hills. They opened their hearts and home to me and showed me all the wonders of their intense lifestyle and beautiful landscape. They introduced me to the wonderful effort they are making to preserve both their environment and their culture.

I want to do something to help their effort and I need your help.

Please check out my project listed below and help me get these wonderful Maasai people a truck that they desperately need to support their work.

I've been touring around playing the Swell Season's new record. We are going to be playing a few upcoming benefit shows to help raise funds for the truck and also awareness for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, which my friend Edward Norton is involved with.

Please check it all out.

Giving feels good. Join me.

Thanks

Glen
