Giving a Book a Day

I've discovered something cool - a way to donate a book a day to support literacy for kids.

I've known about the Hunger Site for a long time, and for a while now have been getting daily reminder emails.  I always do it from my phone - click over from the email to the hunger site and click the button - once a day - to donate a cup of food to the hungry.  There's lots of shopping you can do while you're there, that also supports good causes, and lots of ads, but I always just click and run.  :) 

Until recently.  I've known that it's a whole group of sites, but it just isn't realistic to go to each of the other sites (Breast Cancer, Animals, Veterans, Autism, Alzheimer's, Diabetes, Literacy, and Rainforest) and click on their buttons to donate to all of the causes all of the time...  But literacy...  I love books, and I value education, and I believe that a good education can help prevent a lot of the problems in our world.  So once I click on my donate food button, I head over to the literacy site and click there, too, to donate a book a day.

It's the season of giving, and I wanted to give you an idea of on more way to give.

PS - I was just looking at it on the computer instead of my phone, and there were actually a few things that caught my eye as potential Christmas gifts... hmm.  I like that a lot of it is fair trade goods that support people in less fortunate circumstances than ours.
