What we're grateful for...

By Lorienne Beals | Development Director

HAPPY THANKSGIVING from Story Tapestries!

As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, we at Story Tapestries are reflecting on what brings us joy. At the top of our list is our amazing family - and that includes YOU!

We're grateful for...

...your ability to read this message

...children's smiles when they have lightbulb moments of learning

...teachers' renewed excitement when they discover new ways to connect with their students

...our partners that inspire and support us

...the child that discovers the joy of reading after participating in a program

...the parents that learn how to share a song, a poem, or a story with their children

...the 110,000 people we were able to connect with in 2016 thanks to YOU!

MOST of all, we're grateful for supporters like YOU that see the value of Story Tapestries.

THANK YOU for being a part of our ever-growing family of artists, educators, parents, students and community members.

We are excited to have launched an artful moment initiative that brings a Story Tapestries artist or family member into your home every Tuesday at 7pm EST. This past Tuesday featured artist Suzanne Richard. If you missed here, you can watch her HERE! Then tune in Tuesday November 21st with artist Carrie Sue Ayvar!

Be sure to check out our latest blog post on the impact of the arts on literacy development.

Several studies have linked the impact of arts with the development of language arts skills and literacy skills. Arts integration programs implemented in schools across a period as short as a few months have been shown to improve students' abilities to master certain language skills.

There are many ways in which the arts can be integrated into the classroom. Read more in this week's blog here...

We have been making great progress to realize our Virtual Classroom tool. We need to raise $5,000 before December 31 to be able to take the next step toward making the project a reality. With special incentives and grants that will help match donations on GivingTuesday November 29th, this presents an incredible opportunity!

If this project still connects with you and what's important to you, please consider being part of this growing social movement - #GivingTuesday. After Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, millions of people will join forces to give back to their communities on #GivingTuesday. GlobalGiving has garnered the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation - they will be matching donations on November 29th for up to $1 million! This means your donation can go twice as far if you give next Tuesday - that's a pretty awesome incentive!

Please consider putting it on your calendar, and letting your friends and family know about this unique opportunity to give the most powerful gift - LITERACY!
