Branford, CT, November 26, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- All children love books, but those living in poverty often don’t have access to them. In low-income neighborhoods, the ratio is just one book for every 300 children. Without books, children don’t develop the reading skills needed to succeed in school or in life.
Kabuki Helps (www.kabukihelps.com), a community of parents and teachers committed to making learning fun, has joined the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots Literacy Program to put books in the hands of children most in need.
“The gift of a book this holiday season can make a huge difference for a child’s future,” said Lisa Hayes, founder of Kabuki Helps. “Literacy opens doors and can help break the cycle of poverty.”
To encourage donations, Kabuki Helps will pay for shipping to Toys for Tots for items purchased through its website for the Literacy Program. Books on the site are appropriate for children in Grades K-5. All are educational, as well as fun, helping children develop basic skills in math and reading.
Shoppers also can support Toys for Tots when they purchase books as gifts for family and friends. Ten percent of every purchase from Kabuki Helps goes to support a charity of the shopper's choice.
