In the spirit of this year's #GivingTuesday, Colectivo will donate 10% of our online sales to Reach Out & Read, a national nonprofit that gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together. Their program serves 4.5 million children across the country - a quarter of whom come from low-income families - with 6,100 program sites that provide 7 million books each year.
10% of all purchases made at ColectivoCoffee.com until midnight on Giving Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020 will be donated to the Reach Out & Read "Mirrors And Windows" Fund!
"Children who feel left out of books risk feeling left out of life. Books, like mirrors, help reflect what we observe and know about the world we live in. It’s powerful to read or listen to a story about someone like you. Books also allow us to view and understand lives that are different from our own, like a window onto other experiences. But to succeed as mirrors and windows, books must tell a wide range of stories—and they must include a diversity of people and worlds." - ROR website
