Build up love for 2010


It’s a great slogan from a local charity that few people can find a reason not to love and support. Open Books, a nonprofit social venture that operates an bookstore, provides community programs, and mobilizes passionate volunteers to promote literacy in Chicago and beyond, just found out that they are in the final round of voting for a $20,000 grant. This grant would help Open Books fund their Buddies program for hundreds of kids in some of Chicago’s most challenging neighborhoods. The program matches each child with his or her own adult Reading Buddy, and has given many of these children the first book they’ve ever owned. What Open Books needs from you is your vote. So, if you feel so inclined, please rally around one of Chicago’s most literary non-profits and then spread the word!
