Matthew Ouimet is 2 years old. He has Primary Hyperoxaluria Type 1. He just received a liver/kidney transplant and is at UCSF fighting like a little warrior to receive and keep these treasured gifts. Prior to surgery, Matthew’s Mom, Kristi Wisecarver -Ouimet was driving 6 days a week from their home in Antioch, CA to UCSF (University of CA San Fransisco) for dialysis and to prep Matthew in the hopes that he would some day receive these organs. As you can imagine, bills are piling up! The Ouimet family’s other worries should not be financially based.

ReadImagine’s mission…. We help kids fall in love with reading by bringing books to life and developing the skills that allow them to do the same within their own imaginations.
“ReadImagine has vision. Revolutionary, beautiful, big-picture vision. The partnerships they are creating with libraries involves collaborative programming in a number of different systems in California, the development of a distribution platform and original interactive story apps. This is a groundbreaking initiative.”

Imagine a best-seller list for the issues that matter most.
We see versions of this every Election Year – jobs, the economy, education, health care. But literacy?
Consider this. The child without books is on their way to becoming …
1 of the 33 percent of 4th graders in the U.S. who cannot read at the most basic level
1 of the 7,000 U.S. students who drop out of high school every school day
1 of the 40 million adults in the U.S. who cannot read
There are 16 million children living in poverty in this country.
And for every 300 children in need, there is only 1 book.
Imagine a nation where all children have the books and literacy support they need to write their best life story. Where a greater number of students earn diplomas. Where our workforce is larger, smarter and more innovative. Where all communities are thriving.
It all starts with a book – and Book People like you. Thank you.
And if you haven’t yet, please share the Book People pledge with your family and friends on
Facebook, Twitter and good old-fashioned email.
