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

CROWDRISING SINCE: Apr 17, 2012
Stuff About Me:

My friends would say I...

  • Drink way too much tea (borderline addict)
  • Love to dance
  • Can consume an unfathomable amount of vegetables (probably due to my vegan-ness)
  • Am semi nomadic and love to learn about new cultures
  • Can be quite clumsy and accident prone
  • Will fearlessly committ 100% to something I'm passionate about 

The last one is fully in action right now with Imagine Scholar - the organization I now utterly  believe in, and stand behind with all my heart.  I moved down to South Africa in April 2012 to start volunteering for them, and haven't looked back ever since.

My Personal Philosophy:  If I had to live my life all over again, I'd make the same mistakes, only sooner. 

Life for me is an endless journey for exploration and learning.  Every experience - good, bad, interesting, boring, easy, hard - presents us with an opportunity...an opportunity to learn and grow. A lot of people like to claim people (like us on CR) are trying to save the world, but I completely disagree. The world doesn't need saving, humanity does.  Through empowering others and being open minded, we can all learn from one another and foster the change needed to shift the trajectory of humanity. 

Imagine Scholar embodies everything I believe in.  Through a 4 year afterschool, mentor-ship program for promising youth from the (disadvantaged) Nkomazi region, we're providing South Africa's future leaders with the tools they need to be the change they envision for their generation. We are a student centric program that empowers our students through creative exploration and deep discussion of an array of topics/issues. 

Our students have faced hardship after hardship, yet they refuse to let those hurdles define them. Their committment to changing their future and their community's is unparalleled. I've never been more inspired and humbled in my life than by the Imagine Scholar students and their work.  I feel so incredibly grateful to be a part of such a valuable program, and hope to give back to them as much as they've given me.  

Please join me in pledging support for such a worthy and admirable program.  The Imagine Scholar family will only create positive rippple effects wherever it goes - please help advocate for continuing their sphere of influence.

Many well wishes + Happy Crowd-rising!
