Help ensure CO families read aloud every day! $250 gives 50 families books and reading guidance.


raised by 27 people

$5,000 goal

Over the last year I've learned that 90% of a child's brain has developed by the time they are 5.  During that time, children learn how to learn - and the most impactful activity for their brains and their connection to their caregivers is reading. 

Won't you join me in supporting Reach Out and Read Colorado this Colorado Gives Day?

Your donation will help support Reach Out and Read Colorado as we partner with pediatricians throughout the state to 'prescribe' high quality books and provide guidance for parents/caregivers at more than 290,000 well-child visits this year. 

Reach Out and Read Colorado’s program not only provides underserved families with books to build home libraries, but it also promotes learning and skill building for both parents and children. The simple act of unplugging and reading a book together is proven to increase brain and language development, create strong parent-child connections, and improve kindergarten readiness— And when a child is set up for success from an early age, the possibilities and opportunities are endless! 

Thank you so much for considering a donation to Reach Out and Read Colorado during Colorado Gives Day! $540 provides 100 families books and literacy guidance. Your support means so much to children across Colorado.
