Hi Nicole and JJ, October …
Hi Nicole and JJ,


October vote for you, just in time for Halloween! Wanna hear something scary? Children in low-income neighborhoods have access to only one age-appropriate book on average for every 300 children. Only ONE book! That impacts over 16,400,000 children in the United States.



Even more frightening, 80% of preschool and after-school programs serving low-income populations have no age-appropriate books for their children. Books are so important to a child’s development for learning, imagination and literacy.



Please help Reader to Reader get books into these communities. We donate hundreds of thousands of books each year directly to schools, after-school programs, classrooms, day care programs and other groups serving low-income children across the country. Your donation of $10 today will help us send a box full of much-needed books to6 children that deserve better.
Thanks for all your support, and spread the word!


Happy reading,
Kat (and the Reader to Reader team)

GARDEN GNOMES!!

We want one for our garden... except we need a garden first....

Will you sponsor a garden bed for $28? In return, you'll empower our 25 students and provide them fresh produce (which they don't normally have in their diet).

Will you help? Sending an August vote your way for considering :)

CROWDRISING SINCE: May 14, 2010
Stuff About Me:


I started my first project in May 2010 for my son Jamison, to benefit the Tourette Syndrome Association. I was and still am astounded by the lack of education and high tolerance for ignorance surrounding this neurological disorder. I have found in less than a year I have reached more people than I ever imagined. Even more important, they have touched MY heart more than they will ever know. JJ and I have received a tremendous amount of support and new friendships since posting our project page. We continue to try to raise awareness and correct the perception of Tourette Syndrome.

Each and Every Project I am a part of holds a special place in my heart (proof that I do, indeed, have a heart) but I would like to take a bit to focus on my latest: Project Cuddle
For about 15 years now I have been trying to help spread the word on the option of adoption and to not just focus on the babies, but the expectant mothers as well. They, after all, need the prenatal and postnatal care as well.
Being an adoptee, myself, I believe both mothers and babies deserve the chance at life.
Debbe and Project Cuddle help make this happen for expectant mothers who feel alone and helps them to see that there are options. An unwanted pregnancy does NOT have to lead to an unwanted baby and Abandonment should never be an option. I want to help open hearts and minds as to circumstance of each situation and to let these women know there is hope in adoption for their babies. They will grow to thank them later!

I've got some amazing Projects and amazing team members. Take some time to check them out as well! Without my teams and all of the generous, kind-hearted people on crowdrise, we would not be where we are today. I would like to feel a bit responsible for the awareness that is spreading about Tourette Syndrome and that JJ is breaking the stereotypes of TS as well.  Dont forget to check out all the amazing Crowdrise members and their projects
