Launching the “Born to Read” Campaign

In Uncategorized on June 4, 2013 at 1:51 pm

ReadingStart is launching a campaign to put 1,500 newborn babies on the road to a lifelong love of reading. The “Born to Read” campaign will ensure that new mommies leave the maternity ward armed with a set of books for baby, a “how to” leaflet and information on the importance of reading aloud early on. The campaign will launch in Beirut, Lebanon this fall. Please check out our video and help us spread the word as we fund-raise for the project.
