For a long time now, I have worked for charities and not-for-profits. I am still amazed by just how much can be achieved when everybody works together in a respectful and encouraging way.
I’m passionate about reading and writing, not just because I’m an author but because I have come across too many people that not only don’t have the tools to enjoy the written word. People with poor literacy don’t just miss out on the experience of reading a gripping story, they can also be excluded from society and discriminated against and stigmatised.
So – if you feel like doing something about that – you can donate to the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation.
They are right – literacy is freedom.
