This summer, we partnered with PBS Kids to provide up to $200,000 worth of books to children in need as part of our second annual Soar With Reading program. Between now and August 31, simply share the name of your favorite children’s book at Soar With Reading and through our partner Barefoot Books we will donate one book to a child in need.
With your help we have donated $127,150 worth of books to children in need so far this summer. Well known personalities such as Glen “Big Baby” Davis of the Orlando Magic, PBS KIDS host Mr. Steve, PBS KIDS’ Hooper and Barefoot Books author Laurie Krebs all assisted in spreading the word to help us reach our goal. You too can help us reach this goal. As a special “thank you,’ everyone who submits a book title will be entered for a chance to win prizes including a JetBlue Getaways vacation package.
Soar With Reading is setting the stage for back-to-school reading success through these book donations, reading events in select cities and by providing free resources for families including an interactive reading list, reading tips and expert advice for keeping kids engaged in literature all summer long. Book donations will be made to local literacy-focused organizations identified in partnership with PBS member stations in the 71 cities that JetBlue currently serves.
