I am always looking to “pay it forward.” I love a chance to help others raise money for their organizations.

If you are interested in learning more about any of these childrens charities, please contact the organization through their website.

Here are several Childrens Charities whose hard work and contributions we appreciate:

Children’s Charity: Rock for Reading
This childrens charity Founded by Hugh Haller and Alice Peacock, Rock for Reading promotes literacy awareness! They use rock and roll to inspire literacy and so to enrich the lives of others. They have been supporting and enriching the lives of those in small community programs in the Chicago area by supporting book drives for poor communities.

Their efforts have helped provide less fortunate children and adults with the opportunity for literature both in the classroom and in their homes.

I plan to support their charity through my Usborne Books sales.
