Raising A Reader sprinted out of the gate in 2013

Raising A Reader sprinted out of the gate in 2013! We opened an east coast office in Baltimore to serve the 20,000 children who will be added to the RAR program as a result of a multi-year grant from the Department of Education.

Also, we’ve hit some new milestones for our By the Numbers tally. We have:

  • Now served over 1 million children since our inception in 1999
  • 2700+ sites
  • 171 affiliates
  • 31 states

On February 9th, the Raising A Reader team will head to Pebble Beach in Monterey, CA to host an RAR booth at the 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. If you’re watching on TV, look for the people in red vests!

You have helped us achieve these milestones.  A sincere thanks for your generous support!

PS - Share the love of reading by sending a Raising A Reader e-Valentine to someone special! For just $10 you can send a personal message to a loved one while supporting literacy for underserved children.
