Help RIF Kids Get New Books for a Chance to Win a $50 Amazon Gift Card from Buddig! *Closed*

What would you do in a world without books? For children living in poverty, a world without books is an unfortunate reality. There is only 1 book for every 300 children in these low-income neighborhoods.

With the help of Buddig Lunchmeats, Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) is giving new books to underserved kids.  You can help this worthy cause just by “liking” RIF’s Facebook page. During the month of August, Buddig will make a $2.50 donation matching up to $5,000 to support RIF literacy programs.


This summer, Buddig is also sponsoring a Be A Reader Virtual Book Drive to raise funds to purchase new books for children living in poverty. Help give them a head start by donating to the Be A Reader Virtual Book Drive. Every $10 you donate lets RIF buy 4 books!  Make a donation of $5 or $10 and you’ll receive a coupon from Buddig Lunchmeats. Larger donations could earn you an insulated lunch bag or backpack. Funds raised through the Be A Reader Virtual Book Drive will be used to purchase new books for participating RIF youth.

Buddig Lunchmeats is a proud supporter of Reading Is Fundamental, our nation's oldest and largest children's literacy organization. RIF serves more than 4 million children, with a focus on ages birth to 8.  Please join RIF and Buddig to help get books to children who need them the most.

**Win It**


Thanks to Buddig, One lucky Life With Two Boys reader is going to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card for helping to get the word out about the Be A Reader campaign.

I am a mom of teens now! When they were younger, I read to them all of the time. I miss it! My daughter and I read the Harry Potter series aloud starting when she was 8 and finished when the last book came out :) She is 17 now. I started reading to her when she was still in utero! My son couldn't sit still very long for books lol, but he has been read to anyway! His fave was Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel. I love reading to my preschool class now! I love reading the classic kid lit to them.
