This summer, I started volunteering with Reach Out and Read KC which provides underprivileged children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together. 

Each year, Reach Out and Read KC provides over 65,000 new, culturally and developmentally appropriate books to 26,000 low-income children, birth to age five, during well-child visits at our partner pediatric clinic sites, building a 15-book library for each child before they enter kindergarten. Isn't that amazing!?

I'm so excited to share the success of our fall fundraiser, Books on Tap, which was hosted at Chicken-N-Pickle on September 16th. The event itself was SO much fun, and I'm already looking forward to next year!

I want to give a special thank you to my two favorite Kansas City cookie girls, Frosted KC Bakery for the perfectly decorated (and even more delicious!) sugar cookies and Kara's Cookies for the best chocolate chip cookies anyone has ever had! As many of you know, I love supporting local and I love it even more when the business is woman owned. My photography business has allowed me to meet some of the kindest people, and Brittni and Kara are no exception!

Our goal was to raise $2,021 and we ended up setting a record by raising over $25,000 for early childhood literacy!!!

So, thank you for bringing a good time for a good cause!
