Did you know that one in six American children lives in poverty? You can help!
This summer, kids on THE STACKS are helping Scholastic make a financial donation to kids in need — just by reading!
For Summer Challenge 2009, Scholastic is partnering with Save the Children, an organization dedicated to creating lasting change in the lives of children in need around the world.
Every month this summer, we're asking kids to show their support for one of Save the Children's U.S. programs. As kids on THE STACKS log the minutes they spend reading, show their smarts through book trivia quizzes, and earn points for team participation, they'll be doing it all in the name of these important causes
And at the end of the summer, the team with the highest score will help Scholastic decide where to donate a special book bonus!
These are the four causes that Save the Children is asking STACKS kids to think about this summer:
May: Early Childhood Development
June: Physical Activity & Nutrition
August: Emergency Relief
Save the Children has established an early childhood education program to give poor babies and children the same advantages that other children have.
Save the Children has developed a program to promote healthy habits among poor kids.
Save the Children has established an hour-long afterschool reading program that serves K-8th grade kids in poor rural communities.
Save the Children responds directly to disasters and in 2008 served more than 100,000 children who were living in emergency areas in the United States.
