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

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!)

CROWDRISING SINCE: Jun 08, 2010
Stuff About Me:
My oldest and best friend, Allan Goldberg, died of cancer in 2008. Following his diagnosis in the summer of 2006, Allan challenged me to spend the winter preparing myself to race in the 2007 Leadville 100 mountain bike race in Leadville, CO. My first reaction was to tell him that he was out of his f*%$ing mind. How the hell could I get myself in shape to ride a mountain bike 100+ miles over 14,000 feet of mountain climbing at altitudes reaching 12,600 feet in one day at nearly 40 years old? However, when he reminded me what chemo and radiation was going to be like for him over the next 6 months, I quickly changed my mind and agreed to do it.

At the time, Allan was the Executive Director of the First Descents cancer foundation. I loved everything about the mission of this foundation as it combined youth with adventure and the outdoors and, most importantly, a noble purpose . . . to serve a wildly underserved young-adult cancer demographic. If I was going to do this asinine race, I wanted to make a mark. So Allan and I created Team First Descents and rounded up several like-minded (or should I say, out-of-our-minded) individuals to not only join me in Leadville, but to use the race as a platform to raise money for First Descents.

Needless to say, I finished that first race in 11 hours and 11 minutes and Team First Descents succeeded in raising over $85,000 for the foundation. Since then, I finished Leadville in 10:35 in 2008 and 9:56 in 2009 and am delusionally hoping to break 9 hours in 2010. More importantly, we raised nearly $200,000 more for FD in 2008 and 2009 and I am hoping that Team FD can raise another $100,000 this summer with our Leadville fundraiser. Please support us.

Postscript: I am now a full-fledged endurance biking fanatic and log thousands of miles a year on my road and mountain bikes. This summer I will be participating in the Triple Bypass, Silver Rush 50, Leadville 100 and Shenandoah 100 along with several informal centuries and epic rides.
