I just received the loveliest phone call from Merril Nash’s 4th grade religious school students.
They called to tell me that they had selected Reading Village for their tzedakah project.
And they were so sweet and articulate and clear-minded about why they were inspired to work with us and what they hope to achieve.
I was touched and impressed. It really made my day.
Thanks, again, for spreading the word about us to those in your community.
We just love to connect our good people with eager and mitzvah-directed religious school students and that is what just happened between Linda Smith, founder of Reading Village and the students at Beth El in Pittsburgh. The students had been discussing their tzedakah allocation and they loved the work that Reading Village does promoting literacy among kids in Guatemala. After voting was in, three programs were selected; Reading Village being one of the kids’ choices. Through the wonders of technology, with only a few clicks the kids, sitting in their classroom, connected with Linda out in snowy Colorado.
Great decision, for sure!
