Vote to Promote Literacy!

Click on the link here: https://apps.facebook.com/chasecommunitygiving/charity/view/ein/51-0518142?ref=e38906d989 to support Bess the Book Bus, a mobile literacy organization dedicated to providing books to under-resourced children across America!

“Bess the Book Bus is a mobile literacy outreach dedicated to building home libraries for children and families that otherwise may not have the opportunity to own books.”

Last school year, I wrote a post about the impact of Bess the Book Bus on my school community in Greenville, Mississippi. Recently, there was an article written about the impact of the organization’s efforts:

“What you’ll see with kids a lot is how proud they are of [owning their own book]. They own it and they’re readers, and they’re defining themselves as readers.” -Jennifer Frances

Please vote! Winning this contest would mean a lot to me and to many children across the nation from Massachusetts to Mississippi!
