Great New Cause for Sparky the Wonderfish: A story of how love creates magic!
During the Grand Opening of the Euclid Avenue Elementary School Dec. 5th Gillian was asked by THE WONDER OF READING's Program Coordinator, Eliza Karagezian to join with them in their efforts to inspire in children the love of reading! Their mission is to have a significant impact on reading in Southern California elementary schools. Of course Gillian said YES!
Beginning in early 2009 Gillian will participate with as many of the schools as she possibly can and is honored to do so!
The Wonder of Reading furthers it's purpose through the 3R Program (Renovate, Restock and Read). The Wonder of Reading has successfully renovated 200 libraries, overseen the purchase of more than $2,000,000 worth of new books and trained nearly 5,000 volunteers to read to kids on a weekly basis. The Wonder of Reading focuses on Los Angeles's most disadvantaged children. The 3R Program not only benifits today's students: it puts in place resources that teachers and students can count on for years.
