Looking for a way to get involved?


There are tons of ways to get involved in the fight against illiteracy. I have aligned myself with First Book and Reach Out and Read, but there are a variety of organizations that need volunteers, donations and advocates.  Reading Is Fundamental is one such organization.  RIF is one of the oldest and most expansive literacy programs in the country.   It has established itself as a classroom staple.  RIF has recently had its funding cut, so it is in dire need of assistance.

A great way to get involved is to become a Reading Is Fundamental Ambassador.  By becoming an Ambassador, you will become the face of RIF in your community.  You can organize events, visit schools, launch book drives and much more.  If you don’t have the time to volunteer, you can tailor your ambassadorship program to advocacy or fundraising.  It is all about supporting the cause and making literacy a priority.
If you would like to get involved or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
