This is not a sponsored post. I am promoting this opportunity without compensation. Opinions are my own.

As you know by now I am all about giving and making a difference. I am also very passionate about education and learning. This holiday season I am supporting Cricket Media, and its award-winning family of ad-free kids magazines including BABYBUG, LADYBUG, SPIDER and CRICKET for its stellar content along with giving the gift of reading to kids! Throughout this November and December, any gift-giver purchasing an annual print subscription to one of four different Cricket publications will also deliver the gift of reading to a child in an underserved community through two award-winning, charitable partners: Libraries Without Borders and Parent-Child Home Program, both 2016 Library of Congress Literacy Award Winners. Together we an double the reading and double the joy with their new “Double the Giving” Campaign. You can also enter the giveaway here to win a one year subscription to your choice of Cricket Media Magazine!


Here is how this opportunity works. If you have not heard of Cricket Media Magazines for kids you need to go and check them out. These make an extraordinarily fun and educational gift for every child that they can look forward to all year long. Through the purchase of specially-discounted subscription bundles to BABYBUG (ages 6 mos.-3), LADYBUG (ages 3-6), SPIDER (ages 6-9) or CRICKET (ages 9-14) for $29.95 (regularly priced at $33.95), gift-givers can select between two charitable organizations to receive another 9-issue annual print subscription. Head over to the Double the Giving program website and check out the details to see what a cool idea this is for your children and for those in need.

“Since its founding, Cricket Media has had charity and community woven into its DNA,” said CEO Stephanie Sharis.  “This year, we’re thrilled to put that into action with this incredible campaign that everyone can feel good about.  And with the help of generous consumers, it’s our goal to reach 10,000 new kids in underserved communities across the country, making for a very bright holiday season for all”.
