Hi! My name is Shateequa and I am the founder and director of True Nirvana Cares Inc; a 501c3 nonprofit with hands and feet on the ground in New York City. June 27-August 15, 2020 we are co-hosting our first annual Empire State of Mind Read-A-Thon with Strive Higher NYC. This Read-A-Thon was initially for the youth in the Bronx but once COVID-19 turned the world upside down and most of the youth in New York City lost opportunities such as jobs and experiences we decided to expand the Read-A-Thon and allow all 5 boroughs of New York City to participate.
We are so happy to have 519 youth registered for the Read-A-Thon and over 1000 books to give to them! Now we need your help getting the books to the youth and getting some prizes for the readers.
Our goals for this fundraiser are:
To mail each youth their books by June 20, 2020 so they can have them before the Read-A-Thon begins. Mailing the book is the safest way to get the books out.
To give out 5 prizes per week to random readers that have read 2 or more books and to give our top 5 readers for each borough a prize.
If you do not want to give us money, you can sponsor the shipping for a youth or buy a gift(s) for a youth. Please contact us at email@example.com for more information.
Whatever you are able to give is a tremendous help to us and we will be forever grateful!
Thank you in advance for your support!
