Curing Illiteracy With Literacy Programs

Have you ever wanted to help people with illiteracy but not known how to help? I encourage you to visit a great website that has initiated a worthy cause to help cure illiteracy called "Lemons for Literacy"...and it relies on people like you to help make it happen. Here is a little blurb about it found on the Reading Horizons and the Reading Horizons at Home websites:
As the old saying goes, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!”
Over 40 million Americans struggle with literacy problems. People who struggle with reading can be seen as having been given lemons in life. With the support of effective reading instruction, these people can turn their lemons into lemonade.

We want to celebrate and support the resiliency of people who overcome their struggles with reading. Thousands of inspiring people have turned their struggles with reading into strengths.

Lemons for Literacy has two goals:
1. To help cure illiteracy by providing free literacy materials to people in need.
2. To provide free education for everyone.
