My charity of choice? Heifer International. Heifer International has been helping people help themselves out of poverty, hunger and despair for almost 70 years. In my classroom we are reading and feeding. With each AR quiz taken students count out change that matches the number of points earned from reading. We are trying to earn enough money to buy a flock of chickens...Of course. That is one of the cool things about Heifer. Their catalog is filled with amazing farm animals, and projects that you can choose from to help people help themselves and to share with their community. Their Read to Feed program is a great way to get students to read to make a difference in another person's life.
So, go jump in a lake, find a charity you are passionate about and make a difference!
