More Info

At Start Reading Now, we host and fund book fairs to help close the achievement gap for low-income kids in 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade. Our book fairs help kids create their very own library of 30 brand new books, built over three summers - and it only costs $50 per year, per kid. 

We served nearly 1,000 kids in our first two years, and in 2017 that number jumped to 4,000 kids at 30 public schools across Minneapolis. Your donation will help us serve even more kids this year - about 5,200 kids will get to pick out 52,000 books! 

Access to these books will not only encourage more reading – but these books allow our kids to practice and KEEP their hard-earned reading skills over summer break. 

Over the next two months, we hope to raise $5,000 in individual donations, that will then be graciously matched by our founder Kevin Terrell. Thanks, Kevin! 

So buy a shirt, share our campaign, and sign up to volunteer in May! We'd love to have you there!

Thanks again,

Lauren, Kevin and Pam
