Help Reinstate RIF’s Funding

April 1, 2010

Reading is Fundamental (RIF) is an organization that provides new books to children in need, addressing one of the most important factors affecting literacy – access to books. RIF has distributed more than 60 million free and low cost books in thousands of communities.

But currently RIF needs NSSLHA members’ help! Recently 60 members of the House of Representatives signed a Dear Colleague letter to help reinstate RIF’s funding. Now a separate Dear Colleague letter has begun circulating in the Senate. There is limited time to build support and let Congress know that without federal funding, more than 4.4 million children and families will not receive free books or reading encouragement from RIF programs.

Please send a message to your Senator today. Just enter your zip code to directly send a template statement. It only takes a couple minutes – and it will mean the world to the children who benefit from this program.
