Dear Friends and Family,
I wanted to introduce you to The Book Fairies, a local charity that I have been volunteering with for the past year and a half.
The Book Fairies is fighting illiteracy one book at a time. In five short years, they have provided almost 800,000 free books to more than 500 schools, hospitals, homeless shelters, soup kitchens and more. But they can't do it alone. The Book Fairies needs help to keep going and growing. My goal is to raise $2,500 for The Book Fairies by September 1st. Funds raised go directly towards their literacy-based programming to help children in need. Did you know that 1 in 4 children in the NY metropolitan area will grow up without learning how to read? One of the main reasons for illiteracy is lack of books and reading materials. Children in poor neighborhoods do not have any books in their homes. Too many underprivileged schools have bare libaries and bookshelves. How can these children pull themselves out of poverty if they can't read?
Please help support me, The Book Fairies and families in need across our area. Make your tax-deductible donation today. Thank you for your support. Together, we can change children's stories...one book at a time!
