Things That Matter

30 May

In today’s very busy society, we often forget to take out time for things that matter: family, friends, loved ones–but what about strangers?

Reading Rainbow was a PBS broadcast that aired in 1983 and promoted reading for children. It was canceled in 2006, reruns ran until 2009, and in 2012, a Reading Rainbow app was introduced for tablets. Today, Reading Rainbow has a dream of reaching every child and every school through its new web-based browser, funded solely on the support from people like us through KickStarter.com. With this new browser, reading can be fun and educational to children everywhere and the browser will be provided free of charge to cash-strapped schools.

When I was growing up, I watched Reading Rainbow every day. It was one of the best programs that actually read entire children’s books and made it fun. I didn’t have access to books through the library (I was a kid and had no transportation) and our school libraries didn’t stock books that I was interested in reading. My love of reading grew from this wonderful show and it helped me to become the person that I am today: a writer, an author, and a lover of books everywhere.

Please support a cause that matter to you. Mine is Reading Rainbow. If anyone would like to make donations, please do so here at KickStarter. Thank you.

A stranger is only a friend that you don’t know yet.
