Helping los chicos read more!


Francesco is italian. And most important of all, he is a dreamer, like many of us.

And his dream is from childhood: climbing mountains and helping foster education for children around the world. The name of his dream is « Summit Stories »,  a journey across the seven continents and their highest peaks to help bring education opportunities to underprivileged youth and local communities. 

Like Francesco, let´s dream as high as possible !!! Let´s dream on new books and improving literacy opportunities for each child in Argentina !!! Your help is so important in making this dream come true!!!

« When I climb Aconcagua in January, I plan to support Fundacion Leer, the leading non-profit organization in Argentina that provides reading opportunities to under-privileged children in Argentina.

Remember when you were a child and there was storytime in your day or night? Remember that favorite book of yours?

Help create those tender and meaningful memories to children who do not have those moments.

Unfortunately, many children don’t have this opportunity in Argentina, with devastating impact on the development of their language, reading and writing skills and school performance.

By contributing to Fundacion Leer (Argentina's leading early literary foundation), you will be helping children to be prepared with the necessary abilities and enthusiasm to learn!

Your contribution will finance a project in the Salta region to train operators in charge of children and to build children libraries and provide books for the children to choose and read.

It’s a wonderful program and I am looking forward to meeting and exceeding the goal we set to support Fundacion Leer and help Los Chiquitos read more.

Help spread storytime to Argentina. They will remember it as much as you do :)

As Mt Aconcagua is 6,962 meters high, help me raise a dollar for each meter in support of Fundacion Leer. »

Thank you! Grazie! Gracias!
