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,
Kat

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

CROWDRISING SINCE: Nov 16, 2010
Stuff About Me:

6/2/2012: Thank YOU more than I could ever say to EVERYONE who helped in any way with my Pencils of Promise project these last 5-6 months!! We were able to raise $620!!! That's enough to give 24 children in the developing world another year of school. Crazy, right?!

Here is something new to get excited about: From now leading up to and maybe a little after my birthday (August 31) I will be raising money for charity; water which is without a doubt one of my favorite organizations ever! They do charity the right way making sure that 100% of the public's donations go directly to funding clean water projects that help the 800 million people who currently do not have access to clean water. You can read more about on my project page or on their website: charitywater.org and if you'd like to have every dollar of your donation proved to you where it goes, if you donate to my campaign here: http://mycharitywater.org/Melissa20for20 once your donation is used you will receive an email from charity: water showing you pictures and everything of the water project you helped build and the people you impacted as a result! It's simply incredible!!

Thank you to everyone for your unbelievable support of me and my projects and all the causes I love to help! And thank you for helping with what matters to you because let's be honest, there are so many absolutely inspiring and important causes on Crowdrise that I think at one point a good majority of us on here have thought: "Man, if there was enough time, money etc. to help everyone of these people and causes, that would be perfect." The problem is that there's not, but I will continue to do my best to help everyone and with everything I reasonably can. Although, sometimes I like to focus on a small number of projects for awhile because it seems to be more effective and efficient to have a couple or few goals to reach at a time than ten to strive for like I used to (which I wish I could still do because I never want to feel like I'm, in a sense, neglecting a cause that's important to me.) Anyway, again, thank you all for wanting to help. Even getting some votes is pretty cool because it means people care about/appreciate what I'm trying to do even if they can't devote the lots of time it takes to help or the money that is so hard to come by these days, so thank you to all of you.

Now for the "About me" portion: I believe that with God all things are possible and I see evidence of this every single day. Each day and each moment we are given is a gift we should all cherish and we must do our part to improve this world while we can.

I love people and animals and I will do whatever I can do to help improve the lives of both. I Please help me save/improve the world one person and/or one animal at a time by spreading the word about my projects or donating if you can or both. Thanks.

Melissa
