Project Second Chance Cross-Country B&N Fundraiser Today!

I just learned about this from Jill, who comments at the 7-Imp blog:

Adult Literacy - Project Second Chance

Project Second Chance (PSC), the Contra Costa County Library Adult Literacy Program, offers free, confidential one-on-one basic literacy instruction to people who are over 16 years of age, out of school and conversant in English.

PSC Fundraiser:

On Tuesday, Nov. 10th when you shop at ANY Barnes & Noble, a percentage of your purchase will benefit PSC. Just give the cashier this code: 10040467.

As a special treat, PSC friend, volunteer and former staff member B. Lynn Goodwin will be signing her book, You Want Me To Do What? Journaling for Caregivers, at the Antioch Barnes & Noble from 5:30–7:30 p.m.

This is a great opportunity to benefit PSC and do your holiday shopping at the same time!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this!! Project Second Chance is such a worthy cause. Can you imagine not being able to read books?? These adults cannot read to their children, or study the DMV manual to get their drivers license, or register to vote. Think about that. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
