GIVING: Books In The Hands Of Every Student

My Chi O sister, Whitney, is a teacher in the MS Teacher Corps at North Panola High in Sardis, MS.

This little, blonde, creative writing powerhouse is spending this year changing the lives of 16-17 year olds by spreading the power of literature through Their Eyes were Watching God, and, thereby, addressing the issues inherent to this timeless novel such as race, gender, the cycle of poverty, and love/hate.

In depth reading and discussion of novels like this shaped the way I look at the world; this has the power to break the cycle that holds these kids in high poverty.

Education such as this is the key to the continual enhancement of our great state.

Consider donating! Whitney says that donations made before October 16, 2013 will be matched!

Here's the link:

Thanks, Whitney!!!
