We’re halfway there!

It’s powerful to see what happens when a class of students works together to reach a goal with our Read to Feed program. It’s even more exciting when classes from many different schools in different states commit to reaching a goal together! Reading together, students around the U.S. have raised more than $15,000 for our very special Read to Feed Spring Matching Gift Campaign.

To make it even sweeter, our anonymous donor is matching every dollar raised in this campaign up to our goal of $30,000 funds raised for our East Africa Dairy Development program.  Thanks to the students across the country who are enthusiastically reading, we are MORE THAN HALFWAY to reaching our goal!

We are so grateful for the teachers who have engaged their students in meaningful change for families in East Africa! There’s still time to join in—visit www.readtofeed.org to find out how students can double their gifts during the Read to Feed Spring Matching Gift Campaign!
