The new campaign in honor of National Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’s birthday, today, The United Way of New York City, in partnership with Ogilvy New York, have launched – Spread The Words in an effort to support the non-profit's literacy program, READNYC.
Together they are engaging the community and corporate leaders to donate their favorite words to help kids in struggling public schools, setting them up for future success. Because here in New York City, 7 out of 10 low income children have heard 30 million fewer words by kindergarten, and by third grade, can't read at grade level.
