As someone who believes in knowledge and literacy I also believe in giving back to the community when possible. Literacy is important, especially in a society in which everything has instructions in some way. As a kid I wasn't the most excited to read, having a brother who struggled with reading in the early stages it was tough, . I was graduating with an English Education degree and yet my brother was struggling with literacy. However, his teachers pushed him and he loves to read now and it is one of his stronger subjects despite a speech impediment and learning disability. If you don't want to donate that's fine, but think of all the children we can help bring literacy to. In low income parts of society there is one book per 300 children. We can change that, let's donate to help bring books and literacy into the hands of our youth.
