Please Join Read to a Child in Raising $100,000 to
Help Kids in Need Love to Read

Astoundingly, 80% of 4th graders from low-income families are not proficient in reading.

Read to a Child inspires caring adults to read aloud to children and to help create better opportunities for the future.  Read to a Child’s volunteer reading mentors give their student partners the time, confidence and tools to reverse the cycle of illiteracy.

Join our campaign!  Read to a Child is raising $100,000 in May, 2015 that will go to provide 6,000 additional reading sessions to children in need during the upcoming school year!

When: The campaign will run from 1 May – 31 May, 2015

Goal:  $100,000 in one month!
