Next in our series of posts about Charitocracy nominees, we have InspireLit, nominated by donor
amrizzo01. They inspire the joy of literacy in children.
A few words on Charitocracy
Firstly, for newcomers: here's how it works. Donors pool their monthly contributions, as little as $1. The cause with the most votes each month wins the pot. No matter how much or how little you contribute, each donor at Charitocracy gets one vote. This is where charity meets democracy. So please share this post and ask your friends to join us and vote! That's how we spread the word and, as a result, grow the monthly pot. The bigger the pot, the bigger our positive impact on the world!
InspireLit is an Alexandria, VA nonprofit started in 2016. Co-founders, Jen Kenealy and Erica Jones, are moms and teachers who share a love of books and children. We created InspireLit to ensure that all children experience the joy of literacy. By building bridges between resources and needs, we strive to ensure that children across Alexandria have access to inspiring resources. Our hope is that our model will be replicated throughout other communities.
How we build bridges between resources and needs to inspire and support kids
- Book Access: Make high quality books available to all children and provide opportunities for book choice.
- Book Connectors: Connect leaders with kids to find just right books that match their interests and reading level.
- Read Alouds: Encourage read alouds at home, school and in the community by providing resources for families, teachers and community members.
