THE STORY:

I have been a volunteer for the "Yes … We Can Read" program at United Way for two years now and have been a reading mentor to two children per fall and spring sessions during that period. The success of these children in school has become very important to me and it is incredibly rewarding when I can clearly see progress in their ability to sound out words and to comprehend what they are reading … It is a joy to see the smile on their faces when I arrive to mentor them and it is a pleasure to see their pride when they have actually read to me. It is a proven fact that a child reading at grade proficiency by the third grade is much more likely to be successful in school and graduate on time. With the funds you help me raise for the "Yes … We Can Read" program combined with donations from others, more children will have the opportunity to experience the joy of reading that both me and my mentees are able to experience through the program, and hopefully more children will ultimately be successful in school.  Please help me achieve my fundraising goal before July 31, 2012!  (P.S. Check out my "All About Me" book that I shared with my mentees during our first meeting)
