Welcome to Change Making Change Fund
Welcome to Change Making Change, where small donations add up to make a huge difference in the lives of children here in the US and around the world. We partner with wonderful organizations — some large, some small — that are doing wonderful work and making a huge impact.
Each month in 2013 we are supporting a different non-profit that supports children in the US or around the world.
Featured This Month
Worldreader gives people in the developing world access to digital books. Using e‑readers and mobile phones, we provide children and their families access to tens of thousands of local and international e-books, so they can improve their lives.
Literacy is a critical driver of prosperity (OECD International Adult Literacy Survey 1994-98), and reading inspires and empowers. Yet in much of the world, people have access to a vanishingly small range of books. Fifty percent of schools in sub-Saharan Africa have few or no books (SACMEQ II), slowing learning and societal advancement. And imagine what children miss if they never discover a favorite book about dinosaurs or space exploration. Worldreader combines new technologies, the mobile phone networks, and declining costs to provide immediate access to hundreds of thousands of local textbooks, storybooks, and international literature.
Change Making Change is founded on the belief that many people giving small amounts of money can do as much good as a few people giving a lot of money. A dollar or two, or just a handful of change. That’s all it takes to change the life of a child. And it’s easy. Just donate your spare change at your neighborhood Coinstar® kiosk. Think of it this way: You have a jar of change at home. There is a child somewhere in the US or the world who would benefit greatly from that money. We can help.
