I See Me! Helps Celebrate “Read Across America” Day
I See Me! gives back to FirstBook and Reach Out and Read organizations to promote literacy.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 02, 2012 - The National Education Association is calling every child in every community to “Read Across America” today. Children’s book publisher I See Me! has gotten involved in the celebration by launching two fundraising campaigns today to its email subscribers. The campaigns give 10% of sales back to non-profit literacy organizations First Book and Reach Out and Read.
According to I See Me! CEO and Co-Founder Maia Haag, “Encouraging literacy at an early age is so important. We are proud to be giving back this week to First Book and Reach Out and Read. We believe we can make an impact.”
First Book provides access to new books for children in need. To date, First Book has distributed more than 90 million books and educational resources to programs and schools serving children from low-income families throughout the United States and Canada. First Book is transforming the lives of children in need and elevating the quality of education by making new, high-quality books available on an ongoing basis.
Reach out and Read prepares America’s youngest children to succeed in school. The organization partners with doctors to prescribe books and encourage families to read together.
The Read Across America celebration also coincides with the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. According to Jennifer Dewing, I See Me! VP of Marketing, “A favorite Dr. Suess quote here at I See Me! is, “Today you are YOU. That is TRUER than true. There is NO ONE alive who is YOUER than YOU!” We love this quote because I See Me!’s mission as a publisher is all about building self-esteem in children.”
