“I can’t express how excited I am to announce that TODAY, we kick off our very first digital fundraising campaign for Friends and Family called ‘Give Me $5’! Read to a Child will be going for a big goal – $50,000 – in one month! Can we do it? Yes, I believe we can!
My seven-year-old daughter Torey set up a lemonade stand to help kickoff the campaign. Torey’s ‘Lemon-Aid’ raised $3 and she was proud to make the donation to help other children. I got to thinking more about the $3 and how it symbolizes the power of just one person! We need more Toreys! So I invite you to join our campaign today by signing up to raise $100 for the cause. And if you can’t join us in fundraising, you could generously ‘Give Me $5’ here: https://www.firstgiving.com/Npo/21980/Donation?designId=21863 or at Torey’s fundraising page here: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/toreymathews/toreysfundraisingpage
A BIG thank you to everyone for your effort and support! I look forward to seeing the results of the campaign.”
