Join special guest Martellus Bennett and others as Page Ahead launches our fourth decade of work on behalf of kids, reading, and educational equity. Learn about where we've been, where we're going, and how YOU can make a difference in a child's life.
This event will be hosted digitally.
The live event will be streamed on Zoom; link to come.
We can't wait for you to join us on March 31 for what promises to be a very memorable A Taste for Reading! Author, illustrator, and creator Martellus Bennett will discuss how he's changing the world of children's stories in his post-NFL career, and you'll get a chance to see how Page Ahead's amazing school partners and students have been able to use books to keep their learning skills up, even during this tough time. If we reach our goal of $230,000, that will cover the costs of putting 12 books each in the homes of 5,111 Washington kids who really need them—can we count on your help?
Donate now by clicking the blue, sparkly button above, and we'll send you information about how to watch the event on March 31. Or, if you prefer to wait until the live event to make your gift, please complete the RSVP form below and we'll send you the event link.
Guided by the fact that literacy is essential to lifelong success, Page Ahead provides new books and develops reading activities that empower at-risk children. Founded in 1990, Page Ahead Children’s Literacy Program has given more than 3.5 million new books to more than 950,000 children through collaborations with schools, social service agencies, preschools, and early childhood programs across Washington. Through our programs, we work to erase the early reading gap for underresourced children before it becomes an “achievement” gap. Page Ahead has grown from a King County book giveaway project to the leading provider of children’s books and literacy services in the state, currently serving more than 20,000 students in eighteen counties, and a top-ranked early childhood education program nationwide on Charity Navigator.
