The partnership allows teachers to fund a full year of SpellNow through the PledgeCents Marketplace
Philadelphia, PA – April 23, 2017 – With both child and adult literacy near all time lows, the need for literacy-focused learning tools is as important as ever. PledgeCents, Inc., the fundraising site which helps to bring resources and opportunities to classrooms by alleviating funding needs, has found a suitable partner to do just that, adding another award-winning tool to its PledgeCents Marketplace. Today, PledgeCents is excited to announce the newest partner, Australia-based Education Curb, whose educational app, SpellNow, provides a variety of learning games to master spelling and is suitable for children ages 1 through 6.
“It’s so important to engage children in reading and writing at a young age, but when offered the choice, we know that playing games is generally going to be any child’s preference,” says Ricky Johnson, co-founder of PledgeCents. “Education Curb has decided that those two things shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. With SpellNow, teachers and families can now engage any student in literacy development, regardless of their learning style through fun and engaging interactive games. Thanks to the Education Curb team, we are excited to do our part to reduce the cost barriers and enhance literacy with our newest partners halfway across the world!“
Through the partnership, Google account holders will be able to utilize PledgeCents to seamlessly generate a fundraising page to cover the cost of a SpellNow license complete with a full year of curriculum and real-time student performance data. The PledgeCents team works with each fundraiser to help raise the necessary funds and will purchase the plan immediately after the fundraiser ends and also connect the teacher to a member of Education Curbs’s team to expedite the process. Anyone interested can visit http://www.pledgecents.com/signup/event/spell-now to create their own page today.
