Read to a Child is excited to announce its first digital fundraising campaign for our Friends and Family called ‘Give Me $5’ and we invite you to join the cause, August 1 – 31, 2014!
83% of 4th graders from low-income families are not proficient in reading.
Volunteer reading mentors give their student partners the time, confidence and tools to reverse the cycle of illiteracy. By fundraising $50,000 in one month, we can provide 3,000 additional reading sessions to children in need!
The Give Me $5 campaign makes it easy for anyone to support the cause with our ‘Give Me $5’ ask – donations in increments of $5 making it most affordable to give and to fundraise.
It’s easy to join the campaign!
– Sign up as a champion to fundraise a goal of $100 in one month online! That’s just 20 friends and family donating $5 each to reach the goal! http://www.firstgiving.com/21980.
– Recruit your friends and family to join us in fundraising. We need all the champions we can find to help us hit our goal!
– Go Live with Give Me $5! Simply change your profile photos and covers to our campaign banners! Download the campaign banners https://readtoachild.org/go-live-with-give-me-5-banners/
Prizes will be awarded to the top 5 champion fundraisers and the top 3 champions who recruit the most volunteers to join the campaign! For updates on progress and who is in the lead for fundraising, visit our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/readtoachild.org
Top fundraisers will be announced on Tuesday September 2nd, 2014. * A minimum $100 fundraising goal must be met by your referred champion recruits by end of campaign for qualification. You can email the names of your recruits to Amelie Ansari at: email@example.com
