Help us spread the word about January 28th 2012. Tell all your friends to tell all their friends to tell all their friends. Share it with your gaming groups and podcast buddies and anyone you think might want to spread a little cheer this new year. $1 can go a long way. If 100 people donate a minimum of $1, that's $100 worth of books to be given away. If 100 people donate $5, $10, $20...$30... I think you know where I'm going with this. We can buy a lot of books to give away to hundreds of kids! The more money we raise the more lives we can touch.
Here's why I chose this specific Charity:
My grandma used to read to me when I was little. Some of my earliest memories were of her reading to me and creating stories for me. She would write up these amazing fantasy stories with princesses, dragons and unicorns and I would draw pictures of them all. When I draw or play Dungeons and Dragons I get that same feeling of elation. But that's not all, her reading to me got me interested in reading. I absorbed all the fantasy novels I could find. By the time I was in second grade I was reading at a 4th grade level. A few years later I was public speaking comfortably and able to read and comprehend everything I read, getting Straight A's almost all the way through my school years. Reading is an essential part of my life and I want to share the importance of it with others.
