Reading is Fundamental

Yesterday, Jason Pinter, author of the Henry Parker series, came up with a good idea. He decided to pledge $1 for each new follower he got between today and midnight, December 31 and donate the proceeds to Reading is Fundamental. Then he challenged his corner of Twitter to do the same. The response was big.

Reading is Fundamental advocates literacy in communities all over the United States, and puts books in the hands of children. The gift of reading is one that lasts a life time, and one I am grateful I received early in my life.

Like Jason and many others, I'm pledging $1 for every new follower I get on Twitter between now and midnight, December 31 (PST), up to $250. Yesterday, my new followers and I raised $26, let's see if we can do better today and in the days to come.

C'mon, don't be shy. Make me and the other participants spend their cash on this worthy cause!
