Author, Superbowl Champion, and former Georgia Bulldog football player Malcolm Mitchell founded Share the Magic Foundation in 2016 with a sole purpose: to transform the lives of children through literacy. Mitchell believes that literacy is the foundation for success in all areas of life. Through In-School Programming + Virtual Reading Challenges, Read With Malcolm literacy programs offer an innovative approach to reading.  READBowl is the nationwide reading competition for Pre-K through 8th grade classrooms designed to inspire students to read and provide teachers with a free platform to motivate students to increase reading minutes in school. Beginning the week before the College Football National Championship, READBowl culminates with the crowning of the National Reading Champions on Super Bowl Sunday!
