Help Kids in Need Love to Read!

Emma's Fundraising Page A Project of Read to a Child

One of my favorite things from my childhood was listening to my parents read to me each night before bed. I remember being read all the classics; my favorites were Snuggle Piggy and the Magic Blanket by Michele Stepto, and Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now by Dr. Seuss. Unfortunately, not all children are lucky enough to be read to regularly. 80% of 4th graders from low-income families nationwide are not proficient in reading and more than ¼ of these struggling readers do not graduate from high school. This is just one of the reasons I volunteer my lunch hour once a week to Read to a Child. Another reason I do this is because of the student I read to. I have been her reading mentor for 3 years and she has done nothing but grow in her reading comprehension level since our first day together. It is so great to see her excel and to see how excited she is about the improvements she has made.

I'm teaming up with Read to a Child to help them reach their goal of $100,000 this March that will provide 6,000 reading sessions to children in need. Please help me reach my goal, and the overall Read to a Child goal, by donating to this page and by spreading the word!

Thank you so much for supporting Read to a Child!
