Help Kids in Need Love to Read
Kristin's 2017 Read to a Child Fundraising Page A Project of Read to a Child
My mother passed along her love of reading to me at a young age and has made me a lifelong lover of books and reading!There are very few things in life I enjoy more than curling up with a good story and escaping into a new world.Everything from "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" to "Around the word in eighty days" - I always want to read one more adventure.
I've now seen this start to be passed on to my young nieces and nephews and it has been great re-exploring the books of my childhood through their eyes.Unfortunately, not every child is lucky enough to be read to regularly. Nearly 80% of 4th graders from low-income families are not proficient in reading and 2/3rds of those will end up on welfare or in jail!
Read to a Child inspires caring adults to read aloud to children and to help create better opportunities for the future. Volunteer reading mentors give their student partners the time, confidence, and tools to reverse the cycle of illiteracy. I'm teaming up with Read to a Child to raise $100,000 this March that will provide 6,000 reading sessions to children in need. Please donate on this page and help me spread the word!
