Donate with Amazon Smile

You can help to support the work of Readers Are Leaders by taking advantage of an opportunity. If you shop on-line at, Amazon allows you to donate to a charity of your choice through its Amazon Smile program. There is no additional cost to you - this is part of Amazon’s charitable efforts. Amazon will donate half of one percent of the cost of your purchase to the charity of your choice. (Fifty cents for every hundred dollars spent on Amazon.)

This may not seem like a significant amount, but if enough supporters take advantage of the Amazon Smile opportunity, it can add up to a helpful resource in supporting our work with struggling elementary school readers. With little effort, you can be an active member of our team, helping at-risk kids develop their reading skills and eventually enabling them, as they develop their talents, to become leaders and make their own contributions.
