11 CHANGE MAKERS HAVE SAID ‘YES’ TO 500 FUTURES

Our 500 Futures initiative will be complete when 200 people sign up to give $50/month.

Reaching this goal means that 500 kids will get the weekly literacy support they need to read proficiently & catch up in school.

IT’S ABOUT TAKING A STAND AND INSPIRING CHANGE
THESE KIDS DESERVE OUR ATTENTION

These aren’t passive monthly donations. We want Reading Warriors to feel connected, invested, and eager to share. Here’s what you can expect when you join.

Taking a Stand
The pressures of our current world are overwhelming. Problems seem too big for any one person to solve. We need more people who can think critically and creatively. People who respond out of kindness, not fear. This won’t happen by accident. We have to take a stand for our kids today. Investing in their literacy levels now is the best way to create the brighter future we all want.

Inspiring a Change
Low literacy levels make kids feel isolated and hopeless. At school, assignments meant to educate end up reinforcing fears that they aren’t good enough. But we know that’s not true. We believe in kids even when they can’t believe in themselves. Then we equip kids with literacy and life skills so that they can turn their dreams into reality.

YOU BELONG HERE

This incredible community is composed of generous, passionate, and determined people -like you. They’re world changers and history makers. And you’re going to fit right in.

I am a Reading Warrior because I believe reading changes lives for generations, teaches compassion & empathy, and because Traveling Stories is running a magical program.

After reading to these kids and falling in love with them and their fascination for a good story, I was hooked and devoted to Traveling Stories’ success. One day every child will love reading!
