SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/ActiveforEducation?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#ActiveforEducationlt;/agt;–Callan Farris, actor, musician, and student, has been named an
ambassador for Room
to Read
, a global non-profit focused on literacy and girls’
education. The announcement was made last night by Dr. Geetha Murali,
Room to Read CEO at the Pasadena Public Library during an event
featuring Farris and Stuart Gibbs, New York Times bestselling children’s
book author. Farris has committed to a personal fundraising goal of
US$35,000 to support Room to Read’s literacy and girls’ education
program in India. Fans and supporters can donate to his campaign at https://give.roomtoread.org/callan.

Farris’s philanthropic commitment is aligned with Room to Read’s global
movement called Active for Education, https://www.roomtoread.org/get-active,
which encourages supporters around the world to activate their body and
mind through personalized fundraising campaigns. As a Room to Read
ambassador, Farris will participate in awareness raising activities to
advocate for Room to Read’s programs in literacy and girls’ education,
which enable students to reach their full potential and contribute to
society.

“I have spent countless hours immersed in the pages of my favorite books
and am honored to support Room to Read so that more children can
experience the magic and joy of reading,” said Callan Farris. “I
encourage students everywhere to take action alongside me so that
together, we can unlock the potential of a generation of young learners
around the world.”

Farris stars in The Disney Channel’s “Gabby Duran and the Unsittables”,
premiering later this year. Previous roles include “Ruben” opposite
Halle Berry and Daniel Craig in the 2018 film KINGS, directed by Deniz
Gamze Ergüven; a recurring role as “Kazim” on ABC’s “Roseanne” and “The
Conners”; and roles in pilots for ABC, NBC, and CBS. He has played guest
starred on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Dr. Ken”, CBS’s “Seal Team”,
Netflix’s “Fuller House”, Disney’s “Stuck in the Middle”, and TV Land’s
“Teachers”. He has appeared in a number of national television
commercials.

“Callan Farris is paying it forward so that more students are given the
opportunity to imagine endless possibilities for their futures,” said
Dr. Geetha Murali, Room to Read’s CEO. “Thanks to the action he will
inspire, hundreds of early learners will benefit from a school library
stocked with original local language storybooks and trained educators,
and girls in secondary school will acquire life skills and mentorship to
help them succeed within and beyond the classroom.”
