Unfortunately, I don't live close enough to a city served by Everybody Wins! in order to be a reading mentor. I have, however, followed the work this organization does in the communities in which it serves. I've donated books to the DC chapter and have donated books to their online auction. Everybody Wins! is dedicated to serving children, as well as being an important voice in raising awareness of literacy issues.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

its ability to lead the national discussion on literacy issues. Executive Director Rich Greif engages everyone, from the White House down to the average person on Facebook/LinkedIn/Twitter, to join the movement to bridge the literacy gap in this country.

I met National Executive Director Rich Greif through Twitter (social media works!). As a passionate supporter of literacy efforts, I can not say enough good about the important work Everybody Wins! is doing. All the people I've met in this organization are fired up about what they're doing too. Reaching out to children and helping them become readers early on is so fundamental in increasing education. Do you realize the overall positive impact on society when more citizens are literate? It is HUGE!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

regards to responsiveness. It is very engaging and inclusive.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

open to new ideas and generous with their time.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of millions of families as well as society as a whole.
