I AM PARTICIPATING IN Generosity Brooklyn
IN SUPPORT OF Behind the Book
$603 RAISED
$700 GOAL
Hello fellow book nerds!



I've been involved with Behind The Book for almost a year now, and have had a chance to see firsthand, just how valuable the work of this organization is.



Our programs take place in public school classrooms in low-income neighborhoods...82% of our students qualify for free lunch.



BTB inspires these students to love reading by bringing accomplished authors and their books, as well as volunteers into classrooms, with innovative literacy programs. At the end of last year, teachers reported that 87% of their students showed increased reading engagement, and 85% delivered higher quality written work after participating in our programs.



There are 68 programs in the works for 2016-2017, which will reach approximately 1,800 students. We're also giving away over 4,000 books.



Please help me support these students. Just $15 buys books for one student, and $50 buys art supplies for an elementary classroom!



Thanks for your help!
- Natasha Kempf
