Join us to celebrate the power of the written word.
Jumpstart’s Scribbles to Novels is a unique fundraising event that celebrates the power of written word. Across the country, we unite prominent authors, celebrities and leaders in early childhood education to underscore the importance of literature in children’s lives and reinforce our critical mission—to work toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.
We hope to see you at Scribbles to Novels in New York City.

On May 8, 2012, over 500 supporters gathered to participate in Jumpstart NYC's Scribbles to Novels at Cipriani Wall Street. Guests joined Tina Fey, actress and author of Bossypants, and Wes Moore, author of The Other Wes Moore. In addition to Ms. Fey and Mr. Moore, luminary Stephen Colbert was featured in a special video presentation, and Gayle King, CBS This Morning co-host, interviewed Ms. Fey on stage. Thanks to all of our sponsors, the evening a success and we raised more than $1.1 million in support of Jumpstart’s program in New York City.
