Joe reads to kids

Joe posted a new blog at http://letsgetthis.org/:






Here is just a taste of what your generosity has done. I was lucky enough to read to these amazingly well behaved, (thankfully) interested, cute kids at St. Michael’s in Englewood, CA. 95% of the kids in this school can not afford books and when they found out they were going home with 3 brand new books, they were beyond thrilled.

So first I read them a book- a tad nerve racking at first- I don’t know how teachers do it, but then I got the hang of it. And, again, the kids were so polite. We had a bunch of laughs. I read to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades.

When these kids got there books, it was as if you set them loose in Toys R Us. They loved the books and you could tell they would be cherishing them for a long time to come. And all because you guys to a little time to bring a new book to the summer tour.

Keep up the book drives and get the books to the places that need them most. They are out there. Big ups to the girls who put on the Rock the Block party with the Fat Boys! And Big ups to The Fat Boys for bringing it to another level!!! Legends of the game helping out the cause.
