Reading is fundamental

Each year, my company does it’s annual campaign for giving, where it encourages employees to make donations through a variety of charities. I usually have my own list that I work off of each year, many of which I have previously noted. However, this year, since I am trying to increase the amount in which I give, I signed up for the annual giving campaign. I enrolled in a payroll deduction contribution for “Reading is Fundamental“. Each paycheck, $10 is deducted to go to this great reading program. It doesn’t sound like much, but it adds up to $260/year. Maybe next year it can be even more.

Incidentally, there was an option to make the donation in memorium and so this particular donation is in memory of my grandparents, Paul and Fawn Friedlander.
