BENEFITING: THE LITERACY PROJECT FOUNDATION
Good-Karma is a team spreading our karmic imagination to one community charity at a time. We are doing the Awesome 80's run on August 24th, 2013 http://www.awesome80srun.com, and we are raising money for the Literacy Project Foundation. Our goal is to raise $999 to help at risk and disadvantage children in their journey for literacy.
Did you know...Currently 45 million Americans are functionally illiterate and cannot read above a fifth grade level. Only one-third of fourth-graders reach the proficient level.
Literacy Project Foundation
The Literacy Project Foundation will bring the gift of literacy to children as a foundational learning element to help achieve their personal dreams.
To enable at-risk and disadvantaged youth to increase their reading skill levels.
The goals of our Foundation are to enable these children to become self-sufficient, productive and contributing members of our society. To do this, we:
Access and enhance key phonics skills amongst struggling readers;
Promote learning in a fun, social and interactive environment;
Use proven methods to maximize the learning experience;
Develop increased self confidence; and
Lead to self-sufficiency and economic success.
