At Reach Out and Read, we believe all families should have the tools and information they need to make reading aloud a daily routine. A book is just the beginning, and we play an integral role and responsibility in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within all aspects of our work. With our near-universal reach, we can play a significant leadership role in expanding access to diverse and culturally responsive books for families across the country.
Our #30Hourfor30K Challenge on June 29-30 was ambitious and we challenged you, our generous donors, to help us raise $30,000—which would result in a $30,000 matching gift from several anonymous donors, and you came through with a bang! With your generous donations and supportive words, we raised over $33,000 from 300 donors, resulting in our most successful giving challenge to date and in us receiving the full match.
We are especially grateful to Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity who stepped up to the challenge in a special way, Kelsey E. Johnson, Co-Chair of the Kappa Psi Philanthropy Committee said of the group’s involvement,
Thank you to all who donated and helped us share this campaign, for joining us to celebrate the close of our 30th Anniversary and to chart an ambitious course for the future.
