Happy August! A vote for you…
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,
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: Jun 15, 2010
Stuff About Me:
Image One contributes a percentage of its profits to help raise awareness and funding for autism. Our mission is to contribute $1,000,000+ to autism.

Danielle Pearlman is 10 years old and has autism. She is the daughter of Image One CEO Joel Pearlman.

A STORY OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE:

It started with a feeling. A feeling only a parent understands; a feeling that something was not right with their child.

When Danielle Pearlman was about 20 months old, her parents noticed a change in her behavior - their beautiful baby didn’t meet their loving gaze; her development seemed different, more delayed, than other babies. At first, they thought she might have a hearing loss issue. After having her tested and evaluated, a diagnosis came back that confirmed that feeling – a diagnosis of autism.

Imagine what it must be like to be new parents and to receive a diagnosis that forever alters your dreams and hopes for your child. The range of emotions is overwhelming – denial, anger, loss, fear and grief. Danielle’s parents experienced all those emotions, and more, when they were given the news. Joel Pearlman, Danielle’s father, described the diagnosis as experiencing a kind of ‘death.’ But many parents of autistic children will tell you, there is another side to that diagnosis. There is the relief in knowing that that feeling has a name and while autism isn’t curable, there are supportive treatments that can allow your child to grow and thrive. Then there are the gifts, ones you don’t have to look very hard for. The gifts that are found in Danielle’s smile, her infectious laughter, her loving spirit, and the way her energy pulls you in the minute you enter the room.

About two years ago, someone close to Joel asked him a question:

What is Danielle here to teach you?

Joel didn’t have to think twice about the answer.

Unconditional love.
