Give the Gift of Reading on #GivingTuesday

I thought I would share our #GivingTuesday campaign.

A small investment in our children today will pay a lifetime of dividends!

United Way of Central Illinois’ goal this holiday season is to help children across Sangamon County share the joy of reading at home! A small investment will have a tremendous impact on families and futures, and with your gift, you will be helping parents and children begin a lifelong journey of learning together.

A charitable gift of $10, $25 or more will help United Way of Central Illinois:

  • Improve community literacy, creating stronger families, a stronger economy, and providing a lifetime of opportunity for our children
  • Ensure our community’s children are prepared to learn and succeed

How you can help:

We are raising money for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, which sends free books to kids in Sangamon County. One $25 gift provides a full year of books (12 total) for one child. The program is open to all children, under the age of 5, who live in Sangamon County, and it is completely free to families — they just have to sign up!

Your #GivingTuesday gift at work:

  • A $10 charitable gift will provide 5 monthly books to child in Sangamon County.
  • A $25 charitable gift will provide a full year’s worth of books to child in Sangamon County.
  • A $125 charitable gift will provide a child born today with a free monthly, age-appropriate book until their 5th birthday.

This Holiday Season and #GivingTuesday, give the gift of reading to a child.
