for giving our students a strong start in 2020!

2019 was an incredible year of growth, new opportunities, and recognition for the Always Dream Foundation. Here are just a few highlights, THANKS TO YOU!

  • We launched our newly designed Always Reading Program, a one-of-a-kind, high-impact early childhood literacy program for low-income students, and we’re ramping up to serve more schools in Hawai’i, Arizona, and California!

  • We hired a new book coach, Kathy Moore, who brings over thirty years experience from the education field . Kathy works directly with our schools, students, parents, training them in-person, and texting weekly tips and reminders to support each child’s educational journey.

  • We moved our annual gala to Bimbo’s to rave reviews, raising over $300,000 to help propel our Always Reading program to serve even more students.

  • We were thrilled to add two new pop-up holiday ice rinks! Guests took to the ice at City Center Bishop Ranch in San Ramon, CA, and the Hawai’i Convention Center in Honolulu, HI, and proceeds benefitted the students we serve!

  • Once again, we raised awareness about the importance of early childhood literacy through our events, Kristi Yamaguchi’s Reading Adventures at the Children’s Museum of Phoenix and Kristi’s Keiki Reading Corner at the Hawai’i Book and Musical Festival. Children enjoyed story time with local personalities and celebrities, as well as literacy-themed activities.

  • ADF was honored to be the recipient of two prestigious awards: the Jefferson Award, and the Heisman Humanitarian Award, both validating our literacy work.
All of this was accomplished thanks to YOUR incredible support. Thank you for believing in us, donating, volunteering, spreading the word, and helping our students reach their dreams!

Happy New Year!
