RIF still needs your support

From RIF….

As early as December 15, the fight for RIF’s funding moves back to the U.S. Senate. Senators will vote next week on the FY11 budget bill called the Omnibus, which does include funding for Reading Is Fundamental. It is critical that the Senate pass the Omnibus in order for RIF to secure its funding and continue serving the 4.4 million children in our programs. As you have before, please take a moment and click below to send a message to your two senators asking them to pass the FY11 Senate Omnibus bill that includes RIF’s grant.

Your voice is the strongest and most important weapon we have to fight this battle. Your action helps millions of vulnerable children. Please send your message NOW!

Help Reading Is Fundamental (RIF): It's easy to do

President Bush’s proposed budget for 2009 eliminates the funding for RIF’s Book Distribution Program. Without the funding, the organization will not be able to distribute 16 million books to the nation’s most at-risk children.

Carol Rasco, the wonderful President of RIF, has asked that we all write to our representatives–and I must say the process for doing this is remarkably easy on the RIF website. It will take all of 2 minutes (max)! Please visit RIF and voice your protest today!

We had the honor of working with Carol Rasco, the dedicated staff at RIF and the amazing network of volunteers all over the country with our literacy initiative, Read It! Play It! .
