Donate to your local literacy group.


I used to sit on a local Literacy board. We had a yearly budget of around 30K.....30K is not very much money and the ability to read is one of the fastest ways to upward mobility and out of poverty.

At the same time....our local humane society was operating on a budget that was approaching 7 figures.

I was never able to wrap my head around this.
