DID YOU HEAR? 826DC TURNS ONE.
IN CELEBRATION OF OUR BIRTHDAY, HELP US RAISE $25,606!
In honor of 826DC’s 1st birthday, we are trying to raise the equivalent of $826 a day for the entire month of October— or a total of $25,606. This amount will help us serve another 1,200 students this school year. Yes, $826 a day for 31 days. We can do it but we need you. Whether it’s $20 or $20,000, every dollar is greatly appreciated.
It’s been just 365 days, and, in that short time we:
- Served 1137 students
- Partnered with 24 schools and 32 teachers
- Launched our field trip program and published 28 field trips books, like The Twin Teachers and Zim the Baker vs. The Giant Pizza Head Puppy.
- Watched as 826DC Students read at the White House, and
- Heard Secretary Duncan say some pretty nice things about us on NPR’s Talk of the Nation.
We are off to an amazing start, but we need your help today to make sure that we can continue to provide great access to educational opportunities to DC students for years to come. We need your help today to keep our programs free, so that there are no barriers for students to get the one-on-one attention they deserve.
826DC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to working with students, ages six through 18 in developing their creative and expository writing skills, and to working with teachers to inspire their students to write.
