Looking for a fun way to encourage your kids to write? Andrea Bergstein of Scribblitt, Rachel Jonas Gilman of Yoobi, and Rachael Voorhees of The Molina Foundation have an idea for you. Read on.
Encouraging Kids to Write for a Good Cause
PRESS RELEASE Yoobi and Scribblitt Team Up to Encourage Young Kids to Write For A Good Cause Charlotte, Vermont and Long Beach, California, January 12, 2015
Yoobi is a school supply brand that uses engaging designs and vibrant colors to spark creativity and make learning fun, while also solving a very big problem. For every Yoobi item purchased, Yoobi contributes a Yoobi item to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S.
http://www.Scribblitt.com is a platform where kids can use unique writing and illustration tools to help them write and professionally publish their own store quality, hardcover books. For every book published on Scribblitt, a new children’s book is donated to a child in need through The Molina Foundation. “Teaming up with Yoobi has allowed us to share our passion to get kids writing and to give back each time the purchase of one of our products is made,” says Andrea Bergstein, founder of Scribblitt.com.
“It’s an honor to partner with companies, like Scribblitt and Yoobi, who are invested in making our communities a better place,” says Dr. Martha Molina Bernadett, founder and CEO of The Molina Foundation. “As a family doctor, I often encourage parents to share stories with children to help brain development and build literacy skills. It’s even more exciting when our children can share stories of altruism and generosity with their parents and families.”
To participate in this Scribblitt / Yoobi writing contest, simply register for a free account at scribblitt.com. Create your own unique story about Yoobi the Toucan ‘giving back’ and submit it online for a chance to win Yoobi school supplies and Scribblitt “Make Your Own Books” for YOU AND YOUR CLASSROOM! The contest closes February 20, 2015.
Scribblitt and Yoobi will also be donating Yoobi school supplies and Scribblitt “Make Your Own Books” to a classroom in need through the Molina Foundation.
As an extension of the partnership, teachers can tie together lessons in writing, book development and editing with an important message about philanthropy. To enable educators to leverage the Scribblitt.com platform in their classrooms,

I passed this info along to my daughter-in-law in case she’d like to tell her students 😀
Great post, Darlene! I will be sure to pass this on to my students– and to my own kids, too!
Thanks Theresa. So good to hear from you.
