Too Good Not to Share

OK all of you out there who READ my blog (I am hoping there are a few people out there reading it)... I just found this website and it is too amazing not to share- and too good to wait until a Write About It Wednesday, so here goes- a blog post on a SUNDAY!

I found this website today and if you have not been to it- you have to check it OUT!



We Give Books



As it explains on their website...


We Give Books is a new digital initiative that enables anyone with access to the Internet to put books in the hands of children who don't have them, simply by reading online.
We Give Books combines the joy of reading with the power of helping others, providing a platform for caregivers and educators to inspire children to become lifelong readers and lifelong givers.
We Give Books also helps some of the world's best, most inspiring, literacy organizations by spreading the word about their great work and by providing books to the young people these organizations support.
We Give Books was created by the Penguin Group and the Pearson Foundation. Together, we support literacy through programs that engage entire communities through literacy and awareness programs like Booktime and Jumpstart's Read for the Record. We hope that We Give Books proves to be a way that young children, together with their parents or caregivers, can come to understand the power of reading—and of giving—as much as we do.

I am not their biggest fan and can't wait to spread the word- tell everyone! Share it from the rooftops! I'm their biggest fan! Join me eh?
