It has certainly been a busy year for Raising A Reader! We have been working throughout the country to launch Raising A Reader programs that will be serving 20,000 new children through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
We have launched special "Innovation" projects that are offering children and families books, training and library connections focusing on digital literacy, financial literacy, and school-age specific programming. New sites are opening throughout the country in urban city centers, rural areas and new regions to serve the children and families that need it most. And most importantly, we are hearing stories of how Raising A Reader is making a dramatic difference in the lives of families - helping parents launch their children on a trajectory of lifelong success. And all of this is possible because of wonderful supporters like you. With your generous gifts we are reaching more children and families then ever before, and seeing what even a small gift can do to make a huge difference in the lives of children and families. As always, a sincere thanks for your generous support. You are making a powerful difference!
