A project called Dyslexia-ville, with Academy Award winning filmmaker, Peggy Stern, set a goal to raise $60,000 by June 14th. The money will be used to provide teachers, students, and parents with a great interactive website that builds self-esteem for people with dyslexia.
They reached their goal on Friday June 8th! Great job!
Peggy is dyslexic, and has created a vibrant, colorful, and engaging website for kids with dyslexia to: connect with one another, develop reading skills, and tune into a web series that we are producing just for them.
My Town Tutors wholeheartedly supports this website, because we know it will be a safe haven, and launching pad to success for millions of struggling readers.  This virtual city on the web, will make kids feel that they are not alone as they tackle their dyslexia.
The organization raised $75,500 through an online fundraising campaign through a site called Kickstarter.
D-ville is trying to rally 2,500 educators and parents to donate $10 to our fundraising campaign by June 14th.  Please share this link with others and consider making a small donation to make this great website a reality.
