In August, the Demand Media Studios community teamed up with First Book to provide 15,149 brand new books to children from low-income families through the “Write for a Cause” program. For every eight articles that writers and editors at Demand Media Studios created, the company funded one new book through First Book. In just 18 days of writing for a cause, the team created a whopping 121,192 articles.
During the past year, three “Write for a Cause” campaigns have funded more than 40,000 books for kids who need them most. A big thank you goes out to the Demand Media Studios team for being a committed partner in our battle against illiteracy!
