BENEFITING: UPRISE BOOKS PROJECT
I signed up for reddit Secret Santa and got a really awesome person. He started a great non-profit, The Uprise Books Project http://uprisebooks.org/ They provide new books, free of charge, that have been banned or challenged in school or community libraries to underprivileged teens. Not only do they fight censorship of ideas, they work to foster in teens a love of literacy and thinking for themselves.The org won the 2013 Innovations in Reading prize. A $20 donation purchases books for at least 3 teenagers.
