August Cause Area
education + literacy

August’s cause area centers around education & literacy, especially targeted towards youth. Education is the backbone of any successful community as it is the gift that keeps on giving. When children are given the opportunity to flourish in school, they are then equipped to educate their community and loved ones, creating a beautiful chain of knowledge. Youth deserve to learn without impediments such as lack of resources/technology; all children should have equal access to high quality education. Knowing that one in four children in America grow up without learning how to read, Pebble Tossers strives to help even the playing field for young students, allowing them to reach their full potential.
