Help support literacy: your turn 

John Mennell at the Magazine Publishers’ Family Literacy Project, with which Lucire is affiliated, told me today that his organization now has s. 501(c)(3) status, which means more and better fund-raising options. Above is one widget that we’re using (and it works on this blog, too). You’re free to help this programme to help kids read by visiting this page and downloading an appropriate badge. The above widget can be copied by clicking ‘Copy’ and then pasting the code that’s revealed, though you may want another one at John’s site.
   In John’s words, the Project is ‘the first and only national, industry-wide literacy effort for children and families,’ and it’s our pleasure to support it.
   John and I began working together in 2005 and met that year. Through a event, he met (), who wound up supporting John’s group through her Harlem store.

Other than hunger, I think literacy might be the most important cause any of us can support. We have worked with some clients in supporting literacy in the US. This is a great program. Hope all is well Jack.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
