We all make them, and we break them. Here's one I hope you'll keep and share with others you know. The wonderful people at Hooked on Phonics have created a wonderful program that gives back to the community, and all of us can get involved.
Basically, if you make a New Year's Resolution to teach a child to read in 2009, HoP will donate a learn-to-read kit to needy children through FirstBook.org, a really cool non-profit. The best part is that it is FREE.
So get started today! Pledge now to help a child to read in 2009, and give them the tools they need to succeed not only with reading, but with their overall education.
