ABOUT US

Read in Red was built on the idea, that connection should be easier.  Volunteering should be easier.  We wanted anyone, anywhere to be able to choose to serve, and have the means to do so.

We wanted to make programs that provided a catalyst for veterans, critical care patients, students to connect.  

Our team saw gaps in hospitals.  We were struck by how many people were recovering, alone.  Families wouldn’t want to leave their patient alone.  Providing a break, an hour for a volunteer to read would have provided much needed rest.  Read in Red was designed to support patients and hospitals.  

Our team saw gaps amongst military veterans.  Many vets and families recovering alone.  Many sought companionship.  

Our team saw gaps in schools,  As many students needed a little bit of extra support, and mentorship.

Reading to my twins has been one of the greatest joys in my life.  As my girls grow, I want to create an opportunity for them to read, connect and volunteer in their community.  I wanted to create something that made it easier for people to get involved and serve.  

Read in Red is a non-profit organization creating mentoring relationships, friendships, and moments of connection all through the simple act of reading.
