If you live in the Athens area (or even if you don’t and are just feeling nice) please take a look at Books for Keeps, a local charity that raises money to put books in the hands of kids that otherwise wouldn’t get them. They are trying to raise enough money to buy copies of the books that the kids are always asking for, which are currently just out of their price range. If you can spare a few books, go to http://booksforkeeps.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-wimpy-kid-fund.html to make a donation. Ownership of books is a HUGE key to literacy, and so many kids in poverty can’t afford books. This is a great way to change that!
