HAPPY NEW YEAR! Since it’s the very 1st day of a brand new year I thought it would be a good time to mention a really great charity that I just discovered. It’s called the TOYS FOR TOTS Literacy Program. Now, long time Bat-Blog readers know we hype the regular TOYS FOR TOYS charity every year around Christmas. It’s that organization run by the US Marines where they give toys to under-privileged children. Well, now they have another charity where they circulate new books to children who do not have access to libraries. They not only make sure lots of kids get books of their very own but they also teach them how to read. You see, it’s all about teaching kids how to read & learn to love books. This is something I believe in very strongly. I love reading, love books, & can’t imagine a life without being enriched by them. So, this charity has now become very important for me. What I would like to do right now is ask every reader of the Bat-Blog to please consider making a donation to TOYS FOR TOTS or even just spreading the word about it. At the end of this post will be a link to their website. Please consider going there & seeing what YOU can do. This would make an excellent “New Year’s Resolution”!
