The Impact of #ReadForGood and Top Kid Blogs For Everyday Inspiration

It is week 6 of the MeMeTales Readathon 2012. On the final week of the Readathon, we wanted to step back and remind everyone,one more time, about the HOW and WHY of Readathon2012

How has it gone? Amazing.

It has been incredibly satisfying to make a difference in little ways. To drive a love for reading while feeding hungry kids. I cannot think of much else that can be more satisfying! I really have no words to explain the feeling!

WHY READATHON 2012?

1. Because Summer Learning Loss is Real

 It is my very first real summer where my kids have been off from school, but I have witnessed how easy it is for kids to forget about reading. It is so much harder for families that are poor and do not have access to books and reading. 

2. To Feed Hungry Kids.

I cannot remember when I last experienced hunger. I have never had to struggle for a meal, but so many thousands of kids do.  And really, would a child care for an education if he/she did not have food to eat? FoodForEducation is a truly brilliant organization that feeds kids midday meals so they can concentrate while they learn in school.

Getting kids to read one book at a time. Getting kids to learn one meal at a time. That is what we have done. That is what YOU Have helped us do.

 

WHAT IMPACT HAVE WE HAD  ? ….

Kids read. A whole lot. We are feeding thousands of kids as a result.
