Growing up in my household, reading and writing were important. Illiteracy is a very real problem in America. I came across this amazing charity and I wanted to share it with you. First Book puts new books into the hands of children in need, focusing on low-income areas without access to appropriate reading materials. Thus far, First Book has donated over 80 million books, an average of 18,000 books per day. Check out their website to learn more and support literacy in America.
