Special Thanks To

Room to Read

We want to ensure every child has access to a high-quality education, with appropriate grade-level texts, a library budding with books, and a safe classroom with teachers helping them resist pressure to drop out for work or marriage. We're creating world change that helps low-income communities break the cycle of poverty by improving literacy rates and getting one step closer to graduation day. 

 

We're Getting Active for Education!

I immigrated to the U.S. when I was 14 years old. Like many first-generation immigrants, my family had little resources. However, we thrived thanks to what our community generously offered us, from the sea of books at the local library to the free language learning programs. This experience has always motivated me to do more for the less fortunate. 

Before coming to the States, my mom taught electrical engineering at a university. My childhood memory of watching her preparing for lectures and grading papers instilled in me a respect for education. These experiences shaped my yearning to help with education for the underprivileged.

I have been passionate about art since I was a child but grew up following my mother's engineering path. After landing a job, I rekindled my dream to study art. Years into my art practice, I want to make social impact with my artwork.

That brings me to the Room To Read program, which really resonated with my two passions of art and education. I created this campaign to donate 100% of my art sale proceeds, with a goal of raising $7000, towards establishing a library in an existing school space. I invite you to be part of our campaign, to fill a library with books and train the school educators in managing the library and leading children activities to foster a love of reading.

Here is how you can help:

  • Donate to this campaign directly. Apply for company match if that’s available to you. Specify the donation goes to “ArtForEdu campaign https://give.roomtoread.org/ArtForEdu”.

  • When you purchase any of my artwork or commission, I will donate all proceeds to Room To Read. The art selection is at http://minzhongart.com.
