I'm turning 30. If you don't think that's too old to give a gift, I'd like you to consider "giving" me a gift of a donation to the best adult literacy nonprofit in the country (that's an actual, independently verified fact.) Literacy Instruction For Texas (LIFT) is 50 years old this year and is seeking to help 8,000 adult learners to become better readers, employees and educators for their children. I give my time and money to LIFT, so if you love, like or just want to curry favor with me, please give generously. If this site isn't your thing--you want a tax receipt--give directly to LIFT at www.lift-texas.org. Please make sure you tell me so I can thank you (seriously--this would mean a lot to me).
