Do you think twice about reading a holiday story to your child or grandchild, helping them write a holiday wish list, or sending cards to friends? For so many American adults who lack basic literacy skills, these everyday tasks that we take for granted are a challenge.
The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy believes literacy is critical to families. Inspired by the words of our founder, Barbara Bush, our guiding principle is that “the home is the child’s first school, the parent is the child’s first teacher, and reading is the child’s first subject.”
This holiday, your donations can help raise vital funds for literacy. Your generous gift benefits families like Ruben’s, who have improved their lives thanks to programs you support. Ruben says, “The program empowers me to do better than working at a minimum-wage job. It is motivating me to find another career as a business administrator, so I can be my own boss. The Barbara Bush Foundation is changing lives every day throughout the United States. It’s changed ours.”
Donate today so families like Ruben’s can write holiday wish lists, read holiday stories, and have a brighter future. Please join our family of supporters today.
