Reading Makes A Difference

This award-winning grant-underwritten program encourages character development at Title I schools by teaching compassion while students expand their reading skills. The centerpiece of the program is a Jester & Pharley Read-A-Thon which enables students to donate copies of The Jester Has Lost His Jingle and Jester & Pharley Doll to a local hospital.

Reading Makes A Difference Challenge

Schools that have successfully completed a Jester & Pharley Read-A-Thon are challenged to build upon their past achievements. Sponsorship by individuals, local businsses and foundations enables the students to donate additional copies of The Jester Has Lost His Jingle and Jester & Pharley Doll to a local hospital.

Reading To Give

Schools may embark on a Jester & Pharley Read-A-Thon. This program encourages students to read as many pages as possible to raise funds for donating Jester books and dolls to a local hospital. Participants have included entire schools, grade levels or individual classrooms.
