We are Owen P. and Camette Standley.
We are members of Rotary International and have passions for literacy, travel, community spirit, and animals.
Our small millennial family, including our 3 tiny dogs (The Chorkie Dorks), are emBARKing on the adventure of a lifetime.
The goal: Visit 49 states within 12 months to partner with Rotary Clubs in each state to do a literacy project in their community. Our default literacy project is through First Book in which we can earn 40,000 books for FREE to redistribute to low income families.
There is a long list of research specific to how important it is to begin reading to children at a young age, which have affects on vocabulary development, language acquisition, and overall academic success. Please visit us often to learn about our progress and eventual trip.
Tag along. Who knows, we may even come to your town!
