Reading is Fundamental Launches Comic Book Donation Drive


From the press release:

This month Reading is Fundamental Begins Collecting old and used comic books for their National Literacy Project. Comic Shops across North America are taking donations for their local RiF chapter throughout the holiday season.

Please donate your comics to Reading is Fundamental.

Last year’s inaugural donation drive totaled 10,000 comic books and graphic novels. The comics were then distributed to after school programs all over the country. Efforts are being doubled now and hopes are that RiF can collect 20,000 comics this month.

The goal is to get kids hooked on reading and clear your shelf space for more comics.

I hope you can join us in this worthwhile endeavor.
