Eight Nonprofit Organizations Will Share Kidzmet’s Company Sales

“It’s estimated that 2.4 million students are diagnosed with LD and receive special education services in our schools,” says Lilienstein. “Millions more in public school classrooms are challenged with other intellectual disabilities that are not categorized as Special Ed, or suffer in silence because their parents fear the stigma of being diagnosed with an intellectual disability."

Kidzmet founder Jen Lilienstein announced today that her company will donate 25% of company sales of books and memberships from September 28, 2014 to January 17, 2015 to eight learning advocacy groups committed to improving education for children with learning differences.
 
For that time period, Kidzmet will donate a quarter of all sales from all their books on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kidzmet.com, and independent bookstores —including the multi-award winning book, A Parent’s Playbook for Learning by Lilienstein.
 
So that receipts count toward the intended nonprofit, paperback book buyers must email their dated proof of purchase to  learndifferent@kidzmet.com , or fax a copy to 805.823.4892, or mail receipts to Learn Different Drive, c/o Kidzmet.com, PO Box 1478, Summerland, CA 93067.
 
The nonprofits that have been selected and the dates of each drive are as follows:

  • Learning Disabilities Association of America for their work to create opportunities for success for all individuals affected by learning disabilities. (9/28-10/11.)
  • The APD Foundation for their work creating awareness of APD in order to promote early intervention for and diagnosis of Auditory Processing Disorder. (10/12-25.)
  • Eye to Eye for their work to grow and support a network of youth mentoring programs run by and for those with learning differences. (10/26-11/8.)
  • International Dyslexia Association for their indispensable work in the realms of Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, and Dyscalculia. (11/9-22.)
  • CHADD for their ongoing efforts to provide education, advocacy and support for individuals with ADHD and ADD. (11/23-12/6.)
  • Autism Speaks for their advocacy work to support kids and families living with Aspergers and Autism Spectrum Disorder. (12/7-20.)
  • Learning Ally for the tools and resources they provide to promote personal achievement when reading presents a barrier to learning. (12/21-1/3.)
  • National Center for Learning Disabilities for their tireless efforts to improve the lives of all people with learning difficulties and the families that support them. (1/4-17.)

Why is Kidzmet donating a quarter of sales to these organizations? “It’s estimated that 2.4 million students are diagnosed with LD and receive special education services in our schools,” says Lilienstein.
 
“Millions more in public school classrooms are challenged with other intellectual disabilities that are not categorized as Special Ed, or suffer in silence because their parents fear the stigma of being diagnosed with an intellectual disability. These eight organizations, like Kidzmet, are committed to helping parents and teachers understand that it’s not that that these kids aren’t smart--they simply differ from their peers in the ways in which they learn best.”
