This Mother’s Day – FLIP for Literacy

You know you’re excited about a project when … you smile all day long thinking about all of the possibilities ahead.  That’s how I feel about our Family Literacy Integration Project. To help spread the joy, I thought I would do something fun that will make LOTS of people smile.

Why spend money on flowers for Mother’s Day?

books about familiesWith our Mother’s Day raffle, you’re are saying “thanks, Mom” with an everlasting gift for children and their families for years to come! Even if you don’t win the raffle, you’ve made an impact! You have helped a 100% volunteer organization make a difference for at-risk readers and their families.

The 52-book prize is valued at more than $860 dollars. Ten times the cost of the raffle ticket, which is $75.00. We’ll hold our drawing on Thursday, May 9, 2015, at 2:00 pm Eastern Time. We’ll contact the winner so that we can send them a personalized gift certificate to print and put into their Mother’s Day card!

If you don’t win and you would like a certificate to say you made a donation in your mom’s name this Mother’s Day, we’re happy to do that, too!
