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!)

If you have a minute, please take a look at my Reader to Reader projects- we get books in the hands of those that don't otherwise have access to them. Thanks for your consideration!

Happy Reading,

CROWDRISING SINCE: Jun 21, 2010
Stuff About Me:
Giving back has always been a huge part of my life. I'm inspired by all of the wonderful organizations out there fighting for the causes that are changing our world for the better.

I'm new to Crowdrise, but I just love it -- what a great and easy way to support some amazing causes, and to find new ones to care about. And it's such a great way to meet people who care about activism.

Let me tell you about a few causes that are particularly close to my heart.

The CLOSER TO HOME CAPITAL CAMPAIGN for the LOWER CAPE FEAR HOSPICE is a really wonderful organization which is trying to raise enough funds to build a hospice center in Brunswick County, NC. Currently - amazingly - there is no care center in the entire county, which means that it's way too hard to make the all-important visits to family members, just when those visits are most important. Hospice allows loved ones to die with dignity - the work they do on a daily basis is just awe-inspiring. No one should have to travel an hour or more to accompany their loved one on their final journey. Please make a donation to this amazing charity. We have all been touched by someone's passing. And we can all be grateful organizations like Hospice exist. My dad Bill has been working with them for years - the work he does with them is deeply fulfilling, and I'm so grateful to him for introducing me to these amazing people.

The JUVENILE DIABETES RESEARCH FOUNDATION does incredible, important work to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research, education and advocacy.

The OJAI PLAYWRIGHTS CONFERENCE stages a series of workshops every year to develop new American plays with a political consciousness.

Currently, I'm spending my time on Crowdrise helping Lower Cape Fear Hospice but I'll be launching projects for JDRF and Ojai in the near future.

Thank you for everything,
Mary
