Reach Out and Read is a proud recipient of New York Times columnist and two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Nick Kristof’s Holiday Impact Prize!
We are grateful to Nick Kristof for honoring us as we approach #GivingTuesday. His journalism has had an immense impact around the globe.
Two years ago, we set an ambitious goal of reaching 5 million children—about a quarter of the children under age 5 in the U.S.—by 2021. This award will make a tremendous difference in our ability to reach that goal.
Moreover, we plan to use this prize to continue our research on the ways that children grow, learn, and thrive, and how we can best support their healthy development. This prize will also help us create additional content for the clinicians that help to deliver on our model every day.
As you know, we believe all families should have the tools and information they need to make reading aloud a daily routine – so that every child, everywhere has a foundation for success.
