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 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!

Henah :)
New Brunswick, NJ United States
CROWDRISING SINCE: Jul 21, 2010
Stuff About Me:

I'm a little girl with big dreams.

My one passion in life is giving back: I was a Girl Scout for 8 years and finished my Bronze, Silver, and Gold Award, I volunteered at my local hospital and local Indian community, and I am currently a service day coordinator for Rutgers University's Student Volunteer Council. Please help me better the world and give back to others, one step at a time. :)

Currently, I have raised $185 for Haiti through my university's Tie Dye for Haiti event, and I also donated $150 in birthday gifts in 2010 to the Caballona Kitchen in the Dominican Republic. This past year, as a service day coordinator, I have helped with a children's hospital's Halloween Carnival, spent service days at a local soup kitchen, and have planned an Open Mic Night for AIDS awareness among others; I plan to do as much as I can :)

This past winter break (January 2011), I attended Alternative Winter Break in Florida to work with the Give Kids the World Village! I'm so lucky & blessed; it was the best experience of my life. I have been given the privilege and honor of being a Site Leader for one of next year's trip!

Additionally, I am a brother of Alpha Phi Omega, the national service fraternity, and was nominated as the Service Vice President of my pledge class. Lastly, I am an intern at the March of Dimes, helping to ensure stronger, healthier babies.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
