The children are nestled or snug in the beds,.....
T'was the night before Christmas and all through the house,....
Now dash away, dance away,.....
These are the words to classic Christmas stories that we only know if we have been the lucky ones who have had book-loving families and loved ones who have given us these wonderful gifts. REAL exists to help those who do not have those gifts in their lives.
We are Tweeting, Blogging, adding to Facebook, connecting on Linkedin. We have a website! We have a REAL Board of Directors. We have children to work with. We have families to work with. We have books to pick up and deliver. We have stories to tell. We have pictures to share. We have volunteers to work. We have places to offer our work. We need money to make this all work together and put our REAL Mobile on the road! www.therealprogram.org

consider becoming a REAL Literacy Champion by making a donation this season. Your gift will
help sustain our programs. It will be a gift of literacy, and for the children this will be a gift for life.
Rachel and Krystal are working on a sewing project of making little pillows at The REAL Program at Ahabat Sholom. The REAL Program has just finished the semester that was full of fun, learning, games, reading, laughter, literacy and sewing, too!
