Thank you to those who donated as part of 826 Boston's end of the year giving campaign. With your help, we raised over $40,000
towards 826 Boston's programs to reach over 2,000 Boston Public School kids each year. And thanks to a very generous anonymous donor, all gifts made to 826 Boston during the campaign were matched!

Thanks so much for joining us at Books for Breakfast with Pulitzer Prize winning author and historian David McCullough
. If only we could start all of our days in such inspired company!
We would like to thank our supporters for their attendance and generous participation; the event was a smashing success. We've already raised over $70,000
to benefit 826 Boston's free youth writing programs.

On November 3rd, 91 Boston high school students and 88 volunteer tutors paired up for 826 Boston's third annual College Essay Boot Camp. Students received focused one-on-one support from volunteer tutors like Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe journalist Walter Robinson. "College essays are the life stories of 17-year-olds who have already surmounted extraordinary obstacles that few among us confront in an entire lifetime," stated Robinson, who is now Distinguished Professsor of Journalism at Northeastern University.
Thirty-two percent of the students who attended the event will be the first in their family to attend college and over 60% are first generation Americans. "To be honest, I came here with no ideas, no topic, nothing," stated one student in attendance. "I am so grateful to be a participant in this program. I overcame a lot."
A special thanks to our outstanding tutors and to our partners, Northeastern University's Writing Program and Admissions Office, and WriteBoston.
