WE ARE TRAVELING STORIES

EMPOWER

We empower kids to outsmart poverty by getting them to fall in love with reading.

MONEY MANAGEMENT

We provide the money management skills kids need to be productive members of society.

PRIZES

For each books read, kids earn Book Bucks which they can redeem for prizes.

MEET LANDON DONOVAN
You and a friend could win the chance to hang out with Landon Donovan at the San Diego Sockers’ last home game on April 13th.

We’ll also throw in a jersey, two tickets to the game, and dinner at Phil’s BBQ!
