The Petco Foundation has donated money to Summit Therapy Animals to provide all R.E.A.D. teams with "dog personalized" bookmarks to distribute to children. Vistaprint has offered Summit Therapy Animals a discounted non-profit rate on bookmarks with free shipping. The bookmarks from Vistaprint are high quality printed on cardstock and laminated. We have had children report these bookmarks lasting for 4-5 years (or longer)!

NOTE: this is a follow-on grant from the Petco Foundation to a previous grant we received from the Bessie Minor Swift Foundation. Many of you already have or have had bookmarks from the previous grant.

The bookmarks have a personalized front and a "Summit Therapy Animals" back. Here is an example of one such bookmark distributed in the 2018 Library Summer Reading Program:
Personalized Front
Back of Bookmark

You have a choice of 3 front designs: horizontal name, vertical name or "I read" tagline. Examples:
Horizontal Name
Vertical Name
"I Read" Tagline


Each R.E.A.D. team should email an image of your dog partner to Brad Perry (bperrysled@gmail.com) to make your bookmarks (and choose one of the front designs: horizontal, vertical, "I read"). Brad can crop and adjust most photos to fit in a bookmark, simply provide him an image of your dog partner. Let Brad know how many bookmarks you would like. The minimum is 20 bookmarks, but the price per bookmark goes down as you order more, so request as many as you think you will distribute to children in a 2 year period.
