After many years of foot dragging, this year I decided to get off my butt and find a volunteer gig as a reading tutor. Reading and English teachers and my book-reading Mom played a major role in my learning to read. Nothing I’ve done as an adult would’ve been possible without their help.
A neighbor steered me to Reading Partners, a very organized national group that helps low-income students improve their reading skills. For tentative volunteers like me, Reading Partners offers the easiest volunteer opportunity ever, as little as one hour each week. Even I can do that!
While I have a fun and beer-minded day job, my weekly hour helping a Wyatt Academy 3rd grader has been the most meaningful hour of my week in 2015. So from now through the end of June, I’m donating a buck from each song sold through my Web site to Reading Partners.
I hope you’ll purchase some music and complete your MJ catalog, while helping me return a favor to a very deserving organization and its super-important cause. Learn about the group at http://readingpartners.org .
Thank you very much,
