It's a crazy statistic. 61% of low-income kids here in Houston have NO books at home. I think about my own home. We have so many books! Heck -- here in the studio we've got children's books that I use to study for Mo Knows Country. haha!
When a child reads, they build vocabulary, expand knowledge and spark creativity. This is exactly why we're proud to partner with the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation for our annual Reading Radiothon! All this week we're collecting monetary donations to help transform a child’s life by giving the gift of reading. With the help of the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation, every $5 you donate equals one book for a child's home library. Would you help us?
To donate, you can text HTXREADS to 41444 now from your mobile device or click HERE to go directly to the donation page.
As always, we are so grateful to have the best listeners! THANK YOU!
