So far, the kids of Watertown have read for 649 hours! And that means we've reached our first goal, and we'll be donating tree saplings to Heifer International!
Heifer International will give tiny fruit trees to a farmer who needs help getting plants for his or her farm. These trees will grow fruit which will feed the farmer's family, and might even be enough for them to sell.
By reading 649 hours, the kids of Watertown have both improved their reading fluency AND helped someone else in need! Way to go guys!
Our next goal is 1250 hours, when we'll donate honeybees! Keep reading!!
