New York Cares Wish List (Dan H.)

New York Cares helps battered women, all young mothers, living in city shelters to learn to read better so that they can find jobs. They do this through book clubs. All the money we get from Amazon.com when people buy books from Dan's Reading List go to this effort. I believe that reading is fundamental. I also believe that a big part of what defines us as men and women is how we relate to people in need whom we've never met.

You can help one of these women, if you'd like, by buying a book from the list:

<a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/registry.html/103-7699393-5475814?%5Fencoding=UTF8&id=12PCFLKD9BUMP">New York Cares Wish List</a>

Buy it as you nomally would, but when you get to the Shipping part, choose Change and have the book sent to Adult Education Program Manager.

Thanks!
Retired and loving it.

    Thanks

    to those who are helping. I could sure use some more.

    I spent today with the kids at Nazareth Housing. One of them, a four-year-old, was very shy and very nervous because her mommy wasn't with us at the library. I sat and talked with her for a while and she got better. Then Luz, who is my project partner from the agency, told me that the father of this girl used to beat her mother to a pulp and make the little girl watch as he did this. Mom's doing better now in the shelter, and the little girl is in therapy and doing better as well.

    Small story and one of many like it in the world. We do what we can.

    These are the people you're helping by buying a book. You're buying hope, and in a way, freedom. Thanks.

    Keeping it real

    A couple of the daughters of the women we're helping. These two angels were in the group that we took to the library on Saturday.

    Like to help me help them? Thanks.
