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,

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,

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!)

Stuff About Me:
The fact that you are reading this right now already makes you awesome.

So I came across this term that I thought was interesting—Stacktivism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slacktivism). Most of us probably are considered “slacktivists” but I think it’s with valid reason. We work 8+ hours a day and can't devote that much of our time for volunteering, protesting, boycotts, rallies, etc. I don't know this person who coined the slacktivist term but I already dislike him/her because I know s/he is negative. Negativity gets you nowhere. While we don't have the luxury of time to devote ourselves to great causes but it doesn't mean we can't be supportive of them. The best way to show your support when you can't be there in person is by donating. It doesn't have to be a lot-- just whatever you can afford. "Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference... It's up to us to save the world for tomorrow; it’s up to you and me." --Jane Goodall.

There are a lot of criticisms against social networking sites and I agree that it can be stupid. But it can also be a platform for something amazing. So Edward Norton, a brilliant artist and savvy philanthropist came up with this social networking site called Crowdrise where the purpose is not to tell people when you are in line at Starbucks, but a place you can share your passions with your friends and earn money for great organizations in the process. If you are only doing a good deed for recognition from your friends or to feel good about yourself-- that's ok! You should feel good about yourself if you helped out the world! But also realize that it ought to be our duty to help out our world. We humans have destroyed so much of this world already. We need pull our efforts to help repair it.

As you can see from my projects, I’m passionate about animals and the environment. Why do I care about the welfare of animals when there is so much human suffrage in the world that is more important? Because I don’t feel one cause is more important than the other. I don’t feel that humans are above animals. We are all God’s creatures and we are equal. I commend all types of activism but one person can’t do everything. Pick a few causes that you feel most strongly about—and fight for them the best you can.

I hope that everyone of you will create a Crowdrise account and we can become friends. Let us support each other’s causes and have fun while doing it!
