I am an honorary board member for this organization. The character of my website MrsP.com also promotes reading and books. Working with Everybody Wins! USA we have partnered together to have Mrs. P read to large groups of kids at schools in N.Y. and L.A. and provide bookmarks and books for the school libraries. We also worked together to create a Public Service Announcement to promote the message and value of reading to a child. We continue to work together on various social networking campaigns that showcase the importance of literacy. Everybody Wins! USA are amazing partners and a true joy to work with. They are very creative and very collaborative.

I'm a children's author and freelance writer who supports the mission of Everybody Wins! USA. Everybody Wins! is a great nonprofit because it matches low-income students with much-needed mentors. It helps raise awareness about the importance of reading, the issues surrounding children’s literacy and the community benefits of mentoring. I'm very impressed with the organization because it stays in constant contact with its affiliates and supporters and always accepts ideas and feedback that can strengthen the organization.
