Pitch in for Literacy!

Many of you know that charity is not only a great life habit but that it is also a fine way to promote. You've probably noticed how many businesses are eager to associate themselves with everything from breast cancer research to Rawanda. Literacy is a great cause for both readers and authors to support. Both tend to have lots of books to pass on to these efforts. By the way, you'll find a growing list of such charities on the Resources for Writers page on my site, www.HowToDoItFrugally.com. Fine the page with the links at the top of the home page and when you get there, scroll down (-;

Here is another:
Literacy Link -

Leamos, a volunteer tutoring program, operates in a small
rural community in Southwest New Mexico. We support the community by
tutoring adults and children, reading to children in classrooms,
distributing books and information on the importance of reading and
providing resources to those who cannot afford books and supplies for
themselves.

We are requesting books for teens and adults. These will be
distributed through our special programs, such as One-On-One Tutoring,
Family Literacy, and ESL (English as a Second Language). In addition, we
have partnerships with HeadStart for classroom reading, WIC
(Woman/Infants/Children), El Refugio Family Shelter, SWAK (Southwest
Advocates for Kids), teen group homes and the Mobile Library that goes to
more rural areas.

The Federal EIN for our 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Charitable organization is:
81-0655544
