2011-12 marks Rolling Readers 20th year of inspiring San Diego’s children to love reading through hearing books read aloud and giving children books to start a home library. That means our Rolling Reader volunteers have read aloud for an estimated 6,480,000 minutes or 12.5 years. And, we have given 500,000 books to children, many of whom have never owned of book of their own.
This is the year to remember Rolling Readers when you celebrate your birthday. Instead of presents, ask your friends to buy books for Rolling Readers to give to San Diego’s at-risk children. We need brand new books for children ages 5 to 10.
Or, ask your friends to make a $20 donation to Rolling Readers celebrating your love of reading and Rolling Readers 20th Birthday.
