Tustin, CA (PressExposure) November 28, 2009 -- MyElfHelp.com is âSantaâs Official Website,â where young children can read daily messages from Santa with their parents, and write their own Letters and a wish list to Santa. To further promote childrenâs literacy, the family membership subscription can be donated to EVERYBODY WINS! USA, childrenâs literacy program.
Most recently, a White House blog called EVERYBODY WINS! one of the very best and most successful community-based efforts in the nation.
Founded in 1991, a group of five volunteers began reading during their lunch hours to children at a Manhattan school. The EVERYBODY WINS! informal read-aloud sessions have taken root in 16 states and have evolved to include four distinct literacy and mentoring programs: Power Lunch, Readers Are Leaders, Story Time and EW! Book Clubs. For details, visit s: EverybodyWins.org
âReading aloud with children is the single most important activity for helping them become successful readers,â said Rich Grief, national executive director of EVERYBODY WINS! USA. âBy reading aloud with low-income students, Everybody Wins! can help bridge the literacy gap. All donations go directly to help us bring the joy of reading and books to more children around the country.â
Senator Ted Kennedy was a noteworthy EVERYBODY WINS! volunteer, taking an hour out of his busy week every Tuesday for many years to read to one child in a school not far from the capitol in Washington D.C.
âEVERYBODY WINS! fits in perfectly with our mission to promote childrenâs literacy by way of quality family time spent reading and writing together,â said Sandy Scheppmann, creator and president of MyElfHelp.com.
"We hope that MyElfHelp.com is a fun place where parents, grandparents and children can gather as a family to keep the spirit and traditions of Santa alive âvirtuallyâ while also promoting literacy and a positive learning experience.â
A link directory makes it easy for parents to shop online for childrenâs books, clothing, toys and other items.
In order to protect âSantaâs workshop secretsâ a $9.95 one-time membership is required, which in turn generates a donation to the familyâs favorite childrenâs charity.
