RIF, Ruff, Ruff


It’s a DOGgone great time to part of Day of Giving


Lassie, Clifford, Perdita, Pongo, and 101 other Dalmations, Old Dan and Little Ann, The Poky Little Puppy, Toto, Krypto, Marmaduke, and Snoopy were all hanging out on the same page and they agreed, “Ruff, ruff. This Day of Giving idea is about as popular as we are. Wonder who will be the first to make a donation so some child can love us as much as they once did?

As a writer and avid reader, this one is close to my heart. I believe it is so important to make sure that all children have access to books and are given the opportunity to achieve success as they develop a love of reading. Whether they are books about dogs (The Poky Little Puppy is stilll one of my favorites – I do a great mama dog voice!), cats, wizards, or wimpy kids, I’m happy we have an organization like Reading is FUNdamental Pittsburgh (RIFPittsburgh) to bring books and reading programs to area children.  Help RIFPittsburgh on October 3rd during the 2013 Day of Giving.
