The Learning A-Z Star Donation Challenge is a month-long event that gives students the opportunity to help communities in need through reading and completing Learning A-Z activities.
"The Learning A-Z Star Donation Challenge is a great opportunity for children to learn to make a contribution to the world. I love this donation challenge, my kids feel so proud after participating and it motivates them to read more. I am really grateful that Learning A-Z organizes such events."
Make a life-changing impact on communities around the world and model good citizenship
How It Works
Students earn stars by reading books and completing activities within Kids A-Z .
From October 9 to November 3, students donate their stars toward healthy meals, clean water, or school supplies to help communities in need. For each category, students can choose to make a regular donation (4,000 stars) or a mega donation (11,000 stars). All donations are made within the Kids A-Z Star Zone.*
After stars are donated, Learning A-Z makes a monetary donation, up to $20,000, on behalf of participating students to support a children’s humanitarian organization that works worldwide.
The top-donating classroom in each of the 50 U.S. states and D.C., as well as in five different countries, will win a class pizza party to celebrate the impact they’ve made.**
