“Reading to Save Lives”

Posted in: Uncategorized

Over 100 students from 4th to 6th grade at the Maria M. Simons School have taken the challenge! Through Juntos and their humane education lessons, they are learning about the seriousness of animal overpopulation and the sad reality of overcrowded shelters. As a way to help, Adora Negron is challenging them to read. For every book they read and report on, one dollar will be raised for the shelter animals at the Vieques Humane Society. They are motivated and have thus far collectively read over 600 books! The challenge will continue until April 28th.
So, now that the children are doing their part, we are reaching out to the community to do theirs!
Anyone who would like to donate to this cause, please contact River at 787 556 9030 – riverkarmen2015@gmail.com, Adora Negron at ang.juntosvieques@gmail.com or simply use our PayPal button. Be sure to leave a personal note in that case so we know where the funds are to go. Once every book that has been read is matched to one dollar, the kids will present a check to the Vieques Humane Society. Everyone wins! The students have a new found awareness of animals in need that has inspired them to read and money is raised for food and adoption fees for our shelter animals.
Be sure to check out our new video to hear what the children have to say. http://bit.ly/JUNTOS-03-2015
