On November 12, 2015, we will challenge the public in a “flash mob of giving” focusing on one 24 hour period to see how much can be raised for Georgia’s nonprofits. This will be 3D Girls, Inc.’s second year participating in the statewide initiative. We encourage your contributions,  whether you have $10, $100, or $10,000 to give, it all adds up! All donations given in support of our efforts on the GA Gives Day website are tax-deductible.

What’s Next for 3D Girls, Inc.:

The ‘Reading on the Road’ initiative has been created by 3D Girls, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization in Atlanta, GA. The program was designed to develop a culture of readers among low income school communities of Metro-Atlanta. The mission of this mobile project is to increase the access of virtual learning tools, improve fluency and phonemic awareness, and build confidence among young readers. 3D Girls, Inc. will provide access to literacy kits that include electronic devices, e-tools, and books to families in low-income school communities. In addition, the program will link high school mentors with elementary school students for one-on-one reading activities. Each youth reading presentation will be aligned with evidence-based practices that will infuse with drama, puppetry arts, and music into interactive activities. The ‘Reading on the Road’ initiative will not only serve as a catalyst for increasing academic achievement for primary and secondary school students, but it will also provide opportunities for parents to engage in learning opportunities (i.e. GED training, computer classes, job exposure). Parents and family members will be able to enroll into classes to develop skills in locations that are accessible within the community (i.e. Recreation Center, Library, and/or Schools). 3D Girls, Inc. is intentional about bringing literacy tools to our community’s families, which is why we’ve entitled this project, ‘Reading on the Road’.
