BENEFITING: PROMISING PAGES
"Team Read, 2013's Audacious Audit Challenge!
Promising Pages needs an audit! I know, it sounds sinfully boring, but it's true! Without an audit we do have the numbers to be able to apply for some BIG GRANTS that will help us make the kind of long-lasting changes we know our incredible non-profit is capable of!
Not only do we desperately need this audit, we need to prepare for it, and proto! All funds raised here will go directly toward preparing for our audit and the actual audit itself.
Please donate ten, or if you are really generous, 20 bucks or more! Every penny counts! : )
"Team Read, 2013" is comprised of 55 young adults and teens from area high schools and colleges in Charlotte. These are no doubt, some of the best and brightest go-getters in the history of our great city! This summer these 55 amazing volunteers will personally touch the lives of more than 3,000 children, most of who have few if any books at home. Together this unstoppable force will host 120 early literacy events in the community, handing out more than 12,000 books to children as presents. But books are just the beginning. Team read will serve as mentors to many of these children and truly have the power to have an impact on that child's future successes and his or her ability to grow up to be smart, successful and do anything they want to do in the world! Children who go though our programs are 3 to 5 times more likely to think that books are "cool" and nearly 90% of them read for pleasure on most nights! I know! Please help TeamRead, 2013 reach their fundraising goal!
