Let's Stop Reading Shame!
Millions of kids grow up
ashamed of their minds because
they blame themselves for not being good enough at reading.
It's a crime they feel this way and
we want your help to stop it. We are raising
money to give our DVD sets to the teachers and literacy
volunteers that need it the most but can afford it the
least. Help us raise funds that will spread the word about
and help stop reading shame! Donate
