If you haven’t kicked off your holiday season by signing up to gift wrap for LCNV, please consider a gift to our students today as you check out Cyber Monday deals! LCNV makes it easy for you by letting you know exactly what we need for our students on our Amazon Wish List. After you finish shopping for yourself your friends and family on Amazon.com, click on this link, or on Amazon.com, click on the Wish List link in the top right corner of the webpage. Then, search for “Literacy Council of Northern Virginia” to see items that we currently need to serve our students. Our address is preset in the system so that you can easily have Amazon.com send the item directly to us. Many of the items are the children’s books that are used by LCNV’s Family Learning Program, which provides English literacy instruction for children (ages 2 – 12) and their low-income, immigrant parents in a supportive classroom environment, emphasizing the goal of parents increasing involvement in their children’s educational activities. The books are used for instruction within the curriculum, then given to the parents to take home to start their own at-home libraries!

Another easy way to support LCNV while searching for Cyber Monday deals is to search using GoodSearch.com, which donates a penny to your non-profit of choice every time you search! Click “Choose a Cause” on their homepage to easily start donating to LCNV today! The site even allows you to track your impact and how much you have raised for our learners. While you’re there, check out GoodShop.com, which allows you to shop at 2500+ retailers like AmazonTarget or Staples and up to 30% will be donated to your cause. You get to give back while doing the Cyber Monday shopping you need to do and save with over 100,000 coupons on the site!

Thank you for thinking of LCNV during the holidays. We hope you can take a break from all the busy-ness and join us for a potluck meal next week, on Tuesday, December 4, from 6 – 8 pm.  You can find more details here: http://www.lcnv.org/events/annual-holiday-potluck.
