Hi Brent, October vote for…
Hi Brent,


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)

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.
