27 Jul The Fab Empire Hosts Virtual Book Drive
The team that’s brought you the most “Fab” fashion insight, restaurant reviews, party recaps, celebrity interviews and more is commemorating its fifth year in business, and is celebrating by giving back.
The Fab Empire, the award-winning site devoted to acting as ‘the pulse’ of the young professional scene in the nation’s hottest cities, is hosting a virtual “Five Years of Fab Book Drive” to benefit students in Baltimore and Washington DC. The Fab Empire hopes to provide students with the tools they need to chase their dreams and achieve success, citing shocking statistics on literacy that prove the academic system in our country needs help.
“Since 1983, 10 million American students have reached the 12th grade without learning how to read,” says the Fab Empire. “With so many cut backs in our educational systems, students need access to books in order to achieve their goals. Let’s bridge that gap.”
The team’s goal is to raise $5,000 in total, to be divided in half between DC Scholars Stanton Elementary and George Washington Elementary School in Baltimore. Donors can make contributions online. Every $2.50 raised translates to one new book for a student in need.
“As young professionals, the first step to making it is giving back.”
