Stacie J feeds kids hungry to read

Last Monday, I had the pleasure of meeting Stacie J and her mom at the end of a walk through New Jersey, up to my hometown in New York, and then across the George Washington Bridge to her Subway Sandwich Shop in Harlem. Stacie, a well-known fashion model and successful entrepreneur, kick-offed our “Reading is Fashionable” campaign with her own contribution to support an after-school reading program for 4th graders at PS 242. We are joined here by Ms. Thomas from PS 242.

Stacie’s generous support is model for business partnerships, nationwide, that are needed to support teachers and other literacy agents in their own communities. Stacie will serve as a spokesperson for “Reading is Fashionable,” with the goal of celebrating the joy and the power of reading children’s magazines.
