Language Lizard Supports Literacy and Education
Language Lizard is a small woman-owned business that publishes and distributes children’s resources in over 60 languages to promote language learning, multicultural education, and culturally responsive teaching to schools, libraries, and literacy organizations. We remain committed to giving as part of our company culture and continue to support our core causes of global literacy and girls’ education.
As a Pledge 1% member, Language Lizard supports literacy and gifting organizations such as Reach Out and Read and ParentChild+ throughout the year by providing bilingual books and materials to those in need. Most recently, we hosted a special sales promotion to raise funds and provide resources for refugees affected by the events in Ukraine. The promotion's success enabled Language Lizard to make a monetary donation to the International Rescue Committee and donate sets of bilingual books to the Reach Out and Read Program at the Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, RI, and Friends of Refugees in Clarkston, GA. In addition, we are continuing our efforts to offer free resources such as guided education activities that parents and teachers can use to help children learn in a multicultural context.
We also continue to support the non-profit Room to Read in its efforts to improve children’s literacy and gender equality in education in 16 countries across Africa and Asia. Working directly with our local New Jersey chapter of Room to Read, we support Room to Read’s Book Publishing Program, which trains writers and illustrators worldwide and has published over 1,500 original titles in 35 languages and distributed 20 million books to students.
