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: Mar 17, 2012
Stuff About Me:

MY DREAM TO RAISE MONEY FOR CAUSES I CARE ABOUT WITHOUT ASKING FOR DONATIONS:

Some of the fundraising challenges I've faced when asking family and friends for donations is:

  • money is tight (which is understandable during these tough economic times),
  • they've experienced fundraising burnout because they've been asked by competing organizations for donations,
  • they've been asked to buy products for a fundraiser, or
  • they're raising money for charities they support.

This has led me to find a way they can help me raise money for charity without reaching into their pocket.     

I plan to use FREE social shopping sites like: 

  • Bee Savy (see the video on my profile to learn how I'll raise money),

to create a fundraising network to raise money for as many charities as possible on Crowdrise, WITHOUT ASKING FAMILY AND FRIENDS FOR DONATIONS!

YOU READ THAT RIGHT!  I'M GOING TO RAISE MONEY FOR CHARITY WITHOUT ASKING FOR DONATIONS!  

HOW WILL A FUNDRAISING NETWORK RAISE MONEY WITHOUT ASKING FOR DONATIONS?

These FREE social shopping sites provide useful tools like:

  • product price comparison,  
  • listings of online deals and discounts offered by popular retailers,
  • provide cash back offers to others save money at their favorite online stores to buy things they would have bought anyway.  

These sites will offer me a referral cash back for helping others save money and I plan to "pass the savings forward" by donating a portion of my referral cash back to the Crowdrise fundraising projects started by my Crowdrise friends or myself.  It's a WIN-WIN situation for everyone involved.

<<==== Watch the Bee Savy video for a better idea of how I hope to raise money.  

IF YOU:

  • would like to save money when you shop online at hundreds of popular stores
  • have family and friends that would like to help save money shopping online
  • are looking for a new way to raise money for their favorite charities without causing fundraising burnout for your family and friends

I would love to connect with you. Add me as a friend on Crowdrise and feel free to connect with me on  Twitter and Google+.

FOUR THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME:

  1. I've been involved with raising money for my local American Cancer Society Relay For Life event since 2010.  
  2. I have an online gift store, Gifts For One Gifts For All, that offers 2,000+ home, garden, and office decor gift items that also provides fundraising programs to help not-for-profits raise money.  
  3. I'm a big kid at heart and still love to wake up in the morning and watch Saturday morning cartoons as I eat cereal.  
  4. I'm a boxing, professional wrestling, Georgetown Hoyas basketball and Washington Redskins fan.  

P.S. - My next big fundraiser will be to raise money to buy the Washington Redskins and restore them to the level of success they enjoyed during the Joe Gibb era when they won 3 Super Bowl Championships under his leadership.
