RDU 2021 Bundled Up Book Drive

Tis the season ...


Yes, we know Thanksgiving comes first. But, we are so excited to announce our first ever Bundled Up Book Drive throughout the RDU and surrounding areas.


A simple way to serve.



According to the U.S. Department of Education, 54% of U.S. adults 16-74 years old - about 130 million people - lack proficiency in literacy, reading below the equivalent of a sixth-grade level. (Forbes)

Reading is one of the most powerful ways to expand someone's mind and inspire creativity. It can also train you to be a better writer and speaker. In this digital age, it is easy to forget the lost art of curling up with a good book. But, if the past two years of chaos have taught us anything, it would be that the mind is a muscle that we must exercise. We cannot rely only on screens and media platforms to seek new knowledge. We cannot ignore the value of creativity and imagination, especially in times of isolation. Reading allows you to exercise your mind by challenging the analytical and creative sides of your brain. Reading also teaches you how to communicate better which can influence your personal and professional relationships. Most importantly, reading helps shape your identity by creating a space for you to decide who you want to become.


Not surprisingly, reading has many other benefits including:

Reading is an essential life skill. (Ekidstation)

With two of the most challenging years behind us, we hope to express our gratitude to the community by giving back. As a growing startup, there were many obstacles during the volatility of the pandemic. Yet, we have continued to grow and connect with the community in spite of it. So, in the spirit of gratitude, we want to move forward by giving back. This year, Insight will be hosting a season-long book drive and collecting new to gently used books.


Donated books will be distributed to the Wake Up And Read Coalition and other local charities.


All that we need from you?


A giving spirit.

 

If your business is a collection site, all you need to do is:

  1. Place the collection box in a visible, high-traffic area

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Shannon, RDU Mom

We had the best experience!! I loved the model that was used for my son, it really worked for him. He was always very excited for tutoring on Saturdays! The communication was always fantastic and everyone was very professional. I am very thankful for Ms. Sachi and Parker!!! We highly recommend them for anyone needing any tutoring!!

Jesse, Los Angeles Dad

My boys are the typical middle school students - they are free-spirited, funny, bright kids who struggle to focus in class. The large class sizes are especially hard on my oldest son. Insight really gave them the guidance and confidence they needed to show real progress in school!

Kayla, High School Student

I love basketball. I play for my school's Varsity team and we are some of the best in the area. But, I had a hard time balancing sports and school. I want to go to college on a basketball scholarship so I know grades are important. Since working with Insight, my grades in all classes have gone up by at least one grade level.
