Happy August! A vote for you :)

Every year, thousands of kids start school with no books in the classroom, poor school libraries, and no books of their own. Reader to Reader gives out hundreds of thousands of books to under-resourced schools, libraries and children, but the need is especially strong at the start of the school year. They need YOUR help to get books into the hands of children who truly need the power of reading in their lives.

Please consider giving what you can to this important cause. If you can't give now, join the team and spread the word!
Thank you,
Kat

June vote for you!

The summer is here, and school is out! But even though students are enjoying the sun, we're still working hard to bring resources to low-income schools, libraries, and communities. Reader to Reader's work doesn't stop with the school year, and becomes even more important. More than half of the achievement gap between lower- and higher-income youth comes from unequal access to summer learning opportunities. Low-income kids can lose up to two months of reading ability over the summer, while middle-class children make slight gains. Now more than ever it is essential that books are available to low-income children. Help us make this possible with your support today.

Thank you,
Kat

A spring vote for you!

With all the headlines screaming disaster and heartache, it's easy to get disheartened. Reader to Reader has supported schools damaged by tornadoes, public libraries devastated by flooding, and communities deeply affected by local tragedy. But each day we see examples of how much good is out there. That goodness is not always in the headlines. Sometimes, it's tucked quietly away, but it's there, and is the very reason we do this work--to bring books and other resources to the next generation that so richly deserves them.

Reader to Reader needs your help to get books in the hands of children across the country. Will you donate or join our team? Your support makes a difference!

Thanks,
Kat

Happy January vote! Wishing you and your projects the very best this year.
On Thanksgiving Day 2012, someone broke in to Hopi Mission School in Kykotsmovi Village, AZ and stole all their laptops. Without them, students have little access to technology, research, Internet and essential learning tools. No one deserves to lose learning opportunities and resources because of someone else's hurtful actions.
Reader to Reader is raising funds to not only replace these computers, but to keep them safe in a locking cart and prevent any future theft. If you can, please help me support the children of Hopi Mission School today. If you donate $17 or more, Crowdrise will automatically enter you for a raffle to get a $100 donation to your cause (and a $100 Roozt gift card!)

CROWDRISING SINCE: Aug 04, 2010
Stuff About Me:

Our story was cancer - we lost our oldest child and only daughter Cory Katherine to occular melanoma in 2001. We also had a 12 year old (Zach) and a baby at the time, (Landry) who was only 7 months old when she died. After a few years, we thought it would be nice if they had a little brother, so we welcomed Jackson Thomas into our lives. When Jackson was 18 months old, we discovered he had Autism. I can tell you with all honesty that cancer just sucks. At least with Autism, a parent and a child can have a fighting chance. So our attitude about Autism has been more like "Bring it on!"

Now our story is Autism. It has defined us and affected every aspect of our lives. Raising a child with Autism is like running a marathon everyday. Parents of Autistic children are on duty 24/7 because their children’s behavioral issues make it difficult for anyone else to care for them. Desperate, sleep-deprived parents search for help from doctors and agencies who often don’t have the time or the training to adequately address the issues. What these parents want is a roadmap – a plan of action so that they can help their children.

It is not an easy task to treat Autism. It takes a multi-multi-multi-faceted approach and includes many types of therapy and special diets, among other things. Our projects will center on helping parents cope and getting children the healthcare and therapy they need. Our projects will teach parents how to heal their children as much as they can with good nutrition, then fill in the gaps with behavioral therapy. Our projects will provide quality of life. Our projects will also encourage dialogue. Our doctors and educators need to communicate more effectively and quit treating Autism as merely a behavioral issue. Autism needs to be recognized as the healthcare issue it really is.

Oh, and one more thing: JACKSON AND HIS BROTHER LANDRY ROCK!!!!!!
