November 1 is National Family Literacy Day®, a day that is extremely important to me because of my three year old daughter Soleil. I am adamant that she has the opportunities afforded by a top tier education system.
To make that happen, I make sacrifices, the same sacrifices that many parents choose; keeping that camera another year, buying a lesser version of a car, eating out less often, etc. Most importantly, I sacrifice my time. I know spending time with Soleil on education dramatically increases her chances and improves her learning process.
But many families don’t have access to the education resources that I do, nor do they have the knowledge to learn with their children. Because of cost and the deterioration of the country’s educations system, we need NCFL to continue its work!
To celebrate this day, I decided to join The Big Give for Families Learning – a fundraising challenge to raise money for NCFL’s family learning programs and services. The #NCFLBigGive brings together individuals like me from across the country to lift up vulnerable families in a BIG way, by raising money to support literacy and learning in communities nationwide. I need your support as I participate in the Big Give Challenge and have until 11:59pm on Nov 1 to reach my goal! Please donate on ncflbiggive.org.
