The Reading Tub is one of about 100 national nonprofits invited and selected to be part of the Life is Good $125,000 Challenge. The Challenge is a friendly fundraising campaign launched by Life is Good, the lifestyle brand which uses its clothing as a vehicle to spread the power of optimism.
This is a 30-day Fundraising Challenge that started on Monday, November 2. The idea is to #GROWtheGood for organizations that strengthen our communities. To give back to those charities, Life is Good will be donating $125,000 to organizations dedicated to helping children. The organization that raises the most during the Challenge will get a $50,000 donation to their cause. Second place gets $30,000 and third gets $20,000.
We’re ready to raise as much money as we can for our cause so we can win one of those prize donations. And, we really need your help to make it happen.
How You Can Help
The great thing about supporting the Reading Tub is that 100% of donations go to our Family Literacy Integration Project – aka FLIP. We are a volunteer organization so every penny earned goes to our family literacy mission, not advertising, lightbulbs, salaries, or other operational overhead.
1. Join our Fundraising Team by sharing this post with friends and family and encouraging them to donate via email and social media.
2. Donate. Any amount you can give will make an enormous impact so thank you in advance.
3. Tell the world about what literacy means to you by leaving a comment below. [We’ll be sharing this post on social!]
Thank you so much for helping us make FLIP a reality.
