I think most people here know I love to read. I have been reading for a long time, and it never gets old. So, I was saddened to hear that current budget proposals have cut funding for Reading is Fundamental (RIF), which provides books to underprivileged children.
Author Laurie R. King has an excellent post talking about how she saw the benefits of RIF.
RIF has links on their site for how to advocate for them, should you wish to.
Thanks to the Cherry who provided this link.
