My name is Mary List and I’m the Executive Director of Children’s Literacy Initiative in Chicago. This is the first time I’ve reached out to our donors in this fashion, so thank you for taking the time to read my note! I hope you enjoyed Sharon’s recent story about Shawn. Their story was a perfect example of what I’ve seen at our schools in Chicago over the past 14 years. If you missed Sharon’s email, check out their blog post here. I’m following up to share more about CLI in Chicago and ask for your support.
