Ford Fund "Read and Record"

To support children and families who are at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve created Ford Fund Read and Record – a special virtual volunteering project for Ford employees looking for ways to help.

Here’s how it works: Ford employees around the world are recording videos of themselves reading children’s books and we’re publishing their videos in the online library below. Videos will remain available until June 30, 2020 to align with the school year and the United States COVID-19 social distancing mandates and stay-at-home orders.

Investing in educational initiatives is a key priority of Ford Fund. Ford Fund Read and Record expands our ongoing efforts to increase literacy and promote a love of reading – which is now more important than ever as school closures are leaving many children without access to books or someone to read to them.
