“I greatly appreciate the people who donate to Literacy New Jersey. If it wasn’t for you and the great teachers I would not have the confidence to continue my education.”

A huge THANK YOU from Joseph and all the students at Literacy New Jersey! Thanks to your support Literacy New Jersey is still in 1st place. If we are in 1st place at 1:59:59 on May 18th we will win the $20,000 grand prize. We can do it!

What an exciting few weeks. Together we've raised $23,310. This buys 2,331 hours of tutoring. We also raised the most in week 1 and won $800. Last week one of our board members challenged us with a $1,000 match for raising $2,000 and we did it in 24 hours!

Thank you again.

Stuff About Me:

My husband and I have spent a major portion of our lives involved in Education.  My husband taught elementary school for 34 years, sharing the gift of reading with hundreds of children.  As a librarian, I was able to see first hand the sheer joy of reading.  My fondest memory of working in a public library was the day that a kindergarten class came to the library to get their first library card and check out their first books.  As I chatted with the children waiting on line to check out their books, one little girl starting kissing her library card and exclaming how happy she was that she could choose her own books to read.  This is why I have spent over 20 years working to support adult literacy. It is my firm conviction that every person should have the joy of reading.  Please help us to make this dream a reality for all of our students!
