The Issue: Below-Average Literacy Skills in DC

Reading scores in Washington, DC, do not meet the national average, according to 2011 data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, which shows students were tested reading at speeds two years or below their required age-group level.

The Campaign: Helping Youth Access Audiobooks

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then Helping Enrich DC can reach 3,750 total callers through its EarPhone project, where students can call a toll-free number to access audio recordings of books. An anonymous donor will match all donations up to $500. The available books include citywide school-curriculum selections, award-winning works, and popular and classic literature for grade levels K–9. Participants are also encouraged to get the same book from their local public library so they can follow along as it's read to them. Each additional $500 raised will fund another 3,750 of these calls.

An anonymous donor will match all donations up to $500. You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.
