Read to Feed Fall Match 2015
Welcome to the Read to Feed Fall Match!
This fall, when your class participates in Heifer’s Read to Feed Program, your students’ fundraising efforts can go twice as far toward our vision of a world without hunger and poverty! Every donation your students receive through the Read to Feed program will be matched dollar-for-dollar by our generous donor during the Read to Feed Fall Match. That means even more families will be able to have nutritious food, afford to go to school and live better lives.
The campaign starts September 23, 2015 and will end when our goal of $50,000 has been met or January 31, 2016, whichever comes first. Gifts received after the $50,000 goal has been met will continue to go towards the general mission of Heifer International.
How Read to Feed works
The Read to Feed program encourages reading, while heightening students’ awareness that their actions make a difference in the lives of others. While your students are improving their reading skills, other children in struggling communities will gain better nutrition and access to better education, healthcare and other necessities, as their families work to improve their lives.
Children (individually or as a group) get sponsors for each book (or chapter or page) they read during a time frame set by their Read to Feed leader. At the end of the program, the group pools its funds and donates them to Heifer International to help Heifer assist millions of families around the world feed their families and reach self-reliance.
If you are a teacher, create a fundraising page for your class and make it easy to collect donations online, track progress towards your goal, simplify the fundraising process and share student’s enthusiasm. And if you want your students or parents to help reach the class fundraising goal, select create a team once the fundraising page has been created.
Donations can be made online directly towards your fundraising goal or sent in via mail. Simply print out the Offline Donation Form and send it in with the donation, and we will gladly apply it to the appropriate page. Please allow time for us to both receive and process the donation.
Heifer's classroom resources give teachers the resources to educate their students about their world neighbors, hunger, poverty and sustainable development while inspiring students to help Heifer build a better world. Our Global Education Lesson Plans will help you provide your students with knowledge that will help them understand and appreciate the connections between people, their actions and the environment.
