I can’t stand on the sidelines any longer.  Our nation’s literacy problem is creating havoc everywhere today and looking the other way isn’t an option for me any more.

Nelson Mandela lived and left a legacy, he said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

How about we change the world, together?

I personally vow to be a champion for Mandela’s vision.  Literacy is not just about the ability to read and write.  It is also “about having the skills to understand what you read, communicate with others and engage fully and confidently in life’s activities and opportunities – at work, at home and in the community.” (ABC Life Literacy)

I recently read that that at least one state uses a child’s literacy level in the 4th grade to determine future prison bed requirements and it really opened my eyes. Then I read that middle class children have on average 13 age appropriate books per child while lower class children have about 1 age appropriate book for every 300 children. These stats are simply unacceptable.

We can at least solve the later issue, and champion Nelson Mandela’s passion to improve literacy in children by getting books to kids who desperately need it. This holiday season and to celebrate January 27 Family Literacy Day, my children author friends at the EBC (Evolutionary Business Council) created a program to allow people to donate books that are being offered at production costs. Just imagine the difference we can make when we work together to help solve this serious issue.

Here’s how it works. Go to http://ow.ly/sTaEE and select the books you would like to have donated in your name or in others that you are providing gifts. Because the books are donated at production costs, there is a minimum quantity of 5 books to purchase. After you pay for the books, you will be sent a PDF that contains cards to print and put in cards and/or gift cards that you give to others. There will be several to choose from but all will say, “A book has been donated to a children’s charity in need of quality books.”

Help me make a difference today and donate much needed books to our children’s charities this year and for Family Literacy Day. Go tohttp://ow.ly/sTaEE for the full details.

Thank you!

Nelson Mandela said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Do something unique during this season of giving to support literacy and Family Literacy Day Jan 27 by donating books to kids who can’t afford them. Go to http://ow.ly/sTaEE to find out how you can make a difference.

I WILL NOT stand for this any longer. Literacy has hit epidemic proportions and we MUST change it. The EBC’s children authors have agreed to sell books at production cost to get them donated to children’s charity to make a difference by encouraging family literacy. Bedtime stories create memories.. and build literacy. Go to http://ow.ly/sTaEE to find out how you can make a difference.

Nelson Mandela  lived and left a legacy, he said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Let’s continue Mandela’s vision. The EBC’s children authors have agreed to support literacy, and sell books at production cost to get them donated to a children’s charity. Go to http://ow.ly/sTaEE to donate books and change a child’s life forever!

We cannot let this happen any longer. It is certainly disturbing that low-income children have on average about one age appropriate book per 300 children. However, when you compare it those statistics to that of middle-income children, it becomes even more unacceptable. That‘s because these children have about 13 books per child. Change the statistics today, be part of the literacy solution. Donate children’s books offered at production cost to get amazing children’s books to these kids. Go to http://ow.ly/sTaEE and see the details.
