Sorry if this kind of thing isn't allowed here. Please delete or direct me to delete the post if it is forbidden. I'm new to the group. I've watched for a while but have not joined until now. I'm not actually a teacher yet, but, I am working on alternative certifcation. I'm looking to teach EC-4. Literacy and reading in general is close to my heart.

I thought booklovers, and, teachers would be the perfect audience for this info I found.

All you have to do is follow the link below and click it. Costs you nothing. And, can put a book in a kids hands for the first time. The Literacy Site operates year round but right now they have a special challenge match going on. If they can hit or exceed 20,000 clicks in the month of September their sponsor has agreed to donate an additional 20,000 books. Right now they are at 79% of their goal and as you know the month is winding down. I know it is a cliché but reading IS fundamental and anything we can do to promote reading is a good step towards a brighter future. Click now, click often!!

Oh, and, while you're there you might take a look around at the other click-donation sites. They are worthy causes as well.....

I just ran across this group not long ago, and wanted to second the recommendation for this website. I got the link sent to me in an email a long time ago, and click on it almost daily. It does seem to be legitimate, and the causes are all very worthy IMHO.

Thanks Jesmona for a reminder, I've been a little lax lately and need to remember this site better. :)

:) My homepage is and every day when I start my computer I go through and click on all 6 of the different sites' buttons. During the school year, I set up my school computer to do the same.

Just another thought, I had this website recommended to me by another fourth grade teacher at my school, and it is really working well with my class. It is, and the students (or you!) have to answer a vocabulary question correctly to donate 20 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program. It is also self-leveling, meaning that if they get a question wrong, it automatically reverts to a lower level. If they get a question correct it bumps the level up. It is really fun, and they love thinking they are doing something good for other people too. I like that they are looking at and learning new vocabulary!
