Recurring Donors

Let's help the children of Jamaica!

A Better Jamaica’s Jamaica Read-a-thon helps us fund our Jamaica Reads program. You can help us get more 1st graders reading at grade level — and experience greater academic success — by becoming a reader in the Jamaica Read-a-thon 2020. We just need you to spend 15 minutes of your time to read your favorite children's book(s) on Tuesday, December 1st between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm.

We’re looking for 48 friends to rally their friends, family, and networks to support A Better Jamaica's Jamaica Reads program. By becoming a reader for the Jamaica Read-a-thon, you — and your friends — will help more of Jamaica’s 1st graders read at grade level.
