Candace commented on First Book Link

In an update on the use cases listed as examples of First Book's approach to human centered design, we learned today that the communication sent to the First Book network encouraging and incentivizing them to enroll in Mighty Milers' free program yielded a 400% increase in registrations for the week as compared to typical or expected numbers of new registrations. Mighty Milers shared that this time of year they average 15 new registrations per week. Following the First Book communication, 90 new educators enrolled over the course of just four days.

First Book is delighted that yet again, by connecting educators across the First Book network to value-add resources we are helping to elevate the quality of education for children in need and supporting the heroic educators who serve them.

It does. Thank you for putting a finer point on that. Good luck!

Hello Karlos -- I love the work that Conscious Connect is doing. It is completely aligned with the mission and work of First Book. You may already get some of your books from us but in case we're new to you, check us out: www.firstbook.org. First Book is a 25-year-old nonprofit social enterprise that works exclusively with programs serving kids in need to make sure they have access to low-cost or free books and educational resources. We are committed to reducing barriers to education for children living in low-income communities. As you know, an often too-present barrier is lack of access to culturally relevant books that get kids excited about reading. We may be able to support The Conscious Connect by getting you connected to our resource channels, or by facilitating connections and introductions, or helping to identify areas of high need, leveraging the First Book Needs Index. I would be delighted to explore these and more possible synergies if you would like to be in touch. I can be reached at cradoski@firstbook.org. I look forward to learning more.
