From Mrs. Lori Peardon, Independent Educational Consultant,, Usborne Books, www.LoriforLiteracy.com
Since school is starting back up, I wanted to make you aware of Usborne’s Literacy for a Lifetime grant. This may be a great benefit to schools that have experienced budget cuts.
Our parent company, the Educational Development Corporation, sponsors Literacy for a Lifetime. Donations made by businesses, organizations or individuals to purchase Usborne materials will be matched by EDC at 50%. There is a $500 minimum, but donations can be pooled to reach that. There is no cap on the matching grant.
I want to make as many schools aware of this as I can. Usborne distributors have no territories, so I can be of help to any school in the US that is not currently being serviced by us. Teacher and parents are also glad to know that Usborne is completely commercial-free and we only provide educational materials. (No posters of movie characters or teen musicians).
If you have any questions or need any more information, please let me know. You can learn more about this grant program atwww.LiteracyforaLifetime.com.
Thank you, Kevin. You are always in our prayers,
