The Value of a Book

Posted by on Thu, January 26th, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Each week, the Swagbucks Book Club reminds us of the joy and sense of community we get from reading and sharing with one another.  That is why we’ve chosen Reading Is Fundamental as our first charity for 2012.  Reading Is Fundamental, Inc or RIF is the nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit children’s literacy organization.  They provide new, free books to at-risk children and stage fun activities to motivate them to read.  Time is running out this month, which means your opportunity to donate to this great cause is also coming to an end.  As of now, 66,545 Swag Bucks have already been donated, thanks to our generous Swaggernauts.  I would love to see this number skyrocket over the next few days, and I have faith that we can do it!  Track all of the current donations on our Official Swagbucks Charity Drive Page and click here to donate now.

Thank you for all of your contributions.
