TRAVELING STORIES EVENTS & CAMPAIGNS

Love what we do? If you are interested joining us in helping kids in their fight against poverty, you can make a one-time donation or become one of our Reading Warriors with a monthly recurring donation.

$20 to you may represent a fancy drink with an umbrella, but to us and the kids we serve it’s one full month of our reading program! And a changed life…

Giving Tuesday & Year-End Campaign

Use your influence to change a child’s life forever.

Did you know that 2/3 of students who cannot read proficiently by the end of 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare. Over 70% of America’s inmates cannot read above a 4th grade level.

On #GivingTuesday we’re launching our year-end campaign to raise $30,000. Will you help us raise the funds we need to continue empowering these children and their friends in 2019?

How many children will you sponsor?

  • 1 child a year = $120
  • 5 children a year =$600
  • 10 children a year = $1,020

It doesn’t take much to make a big impact. Join our campaign by creating your own fundraising page & inviting friends and family to donate. Click here to get started!
