SUBMITTED BY SEVERN WILLIAMS The East Bay Community Foundation is sponsoring a special, one-day giving spree aimed at attracting donations to nearly 150 nonprofit organizations doing great work in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. The May 6th event is part of a nationwide effort that may be one of the largest online fundraising events in history. Called “East Bay Gives,” the event, according to the Foundation, is an innovative experiment in crowd funding, in which many community foundations are simultaneously participating nationwide. The following Greater Tri-City organizations will be participating: Fremont: Abode Services Fremont Symphony Orchestra HERS Breast Cancer Fdn. Kidango, Inc. Math Science Nucleus Hayward: Community Child Care Coordinating Council of Alameda County Family Emergency Shelter Coalition (FESCO) Hayward Literacy Plus Ruby’s Place, Inc. South Hayward Parish Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc.

San Leandro: CALICO Building Futures with Women and Children “As part of our role as a leader broadening and deepening charitable giving in the East Bay and changing the lives of disadvantaged and underserved people, we aim to support important causes and needs these organizations are addressing,” said Janet Y. Spears, the Foundation’s interim President & Chief Executive Officer. From the stroke of midnight on May 5th through the stroke of midnight on May 6th, anyone can go to and contribute to one or more participating nonprofit organizations doing outstanding work in education, economic development, youth causes, the environment, health, the arts, and more. The site contains everything you need to know about how to donate, background on participating nonprofits, and how East Bay Gives works, said Spears. The East Bay Community Foundation, one of the oldest charitable institutions in northern California, and one of largest sources of philanthropic support for the East Bay, was established in 1928. “Many people wrongly believe that you have to be wealthy to give back and have an impact, but the truth is, the combination of many smaller donations can make a huge difference,” Spears added.

SUBMITTED BY DESIREE SELLATI Thanks to tablet technology, toddlers at the Fremont Main and Newark Libraries are tapping, touching and swiping as part of Alameda County Library’s new early literacy pilot project. There among the picture books, parents and children now have one more option – pre-loaded iPads with educational apps for the very young – to interact and build pre-reading skills at their local library. Research shows that children need positive ways to engage with parents and caregivers – by reading, talking and playing – to learn about their environment. For babies and toddlers, Alameda County Library’s Tots Touch! Project extends the learning experience with enhanced (animated and narrated) picture books and educational games recommended by the American Library Association, Common Sense Media and youth services librarians. Over the next six months, the Tots Touch! Tablets will be available for families to use in the Library. After the trial period, Library administrators will assess the project and evaluate whether to use it as a model in other Alameda County libraries. For more information, call (510) 745-1504.
