“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader” — Alberto Manguel
With today’s educational disruptions, LINC’s mission has never been more critical. Raising Resilient Readers is Essential Right Now.
Prior to the pandemic, children living in poverty were already at a disadvantage. Today, the educational disparity is bigger, with low-income families unable to connect successfully remotely. We need your help to uplift the most vulnerable children, and today, your gift will be doubled thanks to a generous Matching Grant Challenge from The Lawrence Foundation. We must raise $60,000 in 60 days to receive an additional $60,000 from the Lawrence Foundation!
LINC extends the power of literacy to bring comfort to families. Books expand imaginations. Raise expectations. Books give kids the words to articulate their feelings. The imagination to dream a life of their own. The experiences to broaden their possibilities. Books are a link to bring the family together, strengthening bonds that will last a lifetime. LINC empowers parents to raise resilient readers.
