We have good news about October winner Reach Out and Read, right after this quick update...
Sharing is Caring
Over the past couple weeks I've made a big push to improve the experience of sharing at Charitocracy. Whether you nominate a cause, vote for a nominee, or just read about one in our blog, you can share that with your friends and family on social media. That's how we'll attract new donors and more dollars in the monthly pot, without the cost of ads. You are our advertising department!
Many of the building blocks, such as opening the site content to non-donors, creating share images for each nominated cause, and writing one-liner descriptions, I've slowly completed throughout 2019. But now you can click on those Facebook and Twitter share buttons, and put all my work... to work! While you're at it, go ahead and Like/Follow us if you don't already. Thanks, as always, for supporting us.
October 2019 winner Reach Out and Read
At midnight on Halloween we named Charitocracy's 38th monthly winner. Congratulations to Reach Out and Read, nominated by donor
RoamX. They give young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together. You can find their web page here.
Now you have a week to further sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to Reach Out and Read. We've already received one giant $500 pot sweetener! ❤️
Before you go, check out this inspiring video describing Reach Out and Read's fantastic Leyendo Juntos (Reading Together) program for Spanish-speaking families. Then feel good about your part in our collective $1682+ grant to help with their work!
Have a great November and be sure to log into Charitocracy to update your votes or nominate a new cause!
