A Peacemaking Project by Maxwell S.
What is the injustice we are solving?
Catching Joy, Inc. promotes volunteerism and acts of kindness beginning with kids, teens, and their families. We organize hands-on community service projects that youth can do to help teach the responsibility and joy of giving. Our Peace First project this year is addressing the injustice of economic and education inequality. We want to do something to help promote literacy and book ownership to kids in need, specifically in households where reading is not a priority and underprivileged schools. We are going to organize fun events- theme story times, trivia contests, etc.- that celebrate the love of reading. We will collect new and "like new" books" and make bookmarks to go along with them. We will distribute the books to kids in need.
