It has been a wonderful year here at Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy! This year alone, we have mailed more than 300,000 books to children, birth to five, across the state of Georgia - and beyond!
Our efforts to make a difference in the lives of children can be seen in the test scores of our Ferst graduates and from parents themselves who tell us everyday how much they value their children being part of the Ferst program.
This holiday season you can be a part of making a difference in a child's life.
1) Amazon.com makes giving easy at no additional cost to you! Amazon Smile donates 0.5% of all eligible purchases to the charity of your choice. All you have to do is designate a specific charity as the recipient of donations from your eligible purchases. Visit Amazon for details, enter Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy in the space provided and let the giving begin!
2) Charitable Giving: What better way to embody the spirit of the holiday than with a charitable gift that gives a child a lifetime of literacy and hope for a bright future? Go to Ferst Foundation for more information. http://www.ferstfoundation.org/
3) Need a gift for a young child?
How about a meaningful holiday gift that will last a lifetime? Our Ferst Reader program lets you give the gift of literacy to any child, birth to 5, throughout the United States. Grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, friends can give a truly meaningful gift to that special child! Your gift will arrive by mail monthly - until the child turns 5! It's like Christmas every month!! And beyond that, it lays the foundation for a lifelong love of books and reading. Sign up by December 20th, and we'll see that a gift-wrapped package with our first book selection, Read To Me, a parent DVD and a gift card from you arrives in time for the holiday.
Go to Ferst Foundation for more information and to complete registration.
We wish all of you a joyful holiday, and a prosperous 2014.
