Happiness and Hope for a Boy Learning to Read

A teacher wrote me today about a boy helped by MagazineLiteracy.org. It’s a precious story about the human spirit, and about helping, happiness, and hope that cannot hold a pricetag.

Magazines from our program arrived at this teacher’s school for her students, but she asked the kids to leave them at school until the next day when they could take them home. One of the children pleaded to take the copy home if he promised to bring it back the next day. He just couldn’t put the magazine down. Of course, she said yes! The boy took the magazine home and the next day came and told the teacher about all the things he had read – cover to cover.

I remember my own childhood days spent reading magazines, cover to cover, and how I learned so much, and had so much joy. With your help, our program spreads the same joy to many children. We are feeding children hungry to read so they may have a better life now and later, and so their own children will have a better life.

So thank you for your interest in our program and generous support and for reaching out to others.

Godspeed to you and yours this holiday season.
