Thank you to Rebecca Langston-George for the following:
If any of you shop at Macy's you may be interested in their new partnership to raise funds for RIF (Reading Is FUNdamental). Reading Is FUNdamental is the country's oldest and largest literacy program which provides free books to low income children throughout the country. You can read the details at: http://www.bookabrighterfuture.com/
Basically, if you make a $3 donation to RIF at your local Macy's then Macy's will not only donate 100% of your donation to RIF (with 1/3 of that earmarked for RIF programs in your area), they'll also give you a $10 shopping certificate (good on a $50 purchase). I [Rebecca] ran two RIF programs for many years and can testify it's a wonderful program. Each of our students received 3 free books a year of their choice through RIF. Feel free to post this info on your blogs, etc. and spread the word-the RIF programs in your area will thank you.
