Thank you to everyone who donated to our Reading Rock Stars Program during the Amplify Austin campaign that took place March 5th and 6th, 2015. Because of you, we not only reached our goal of raising $10,000, but we surpassed it, raising a total $13,190! Reading Rock Stars gives students in disadvantaged public schools the opportunity to interact with beloved children’s authors from across the country. The TBF gives each child a new, autographed copy of their author’s book. For many children, this is the first book they have ever owned.
Thanks Starling! Starling Eyewear, provider of premium readers and sun readers, graciously partnered with the Texas Book Festival to give 50% off a Starling Eyewear order to anyone who donated $50 or more during Amplify. Coupons were emailed to donors on Monday, March 9th, 2015.
