My love of reading started at a young age. I was fairly indifferent to reading until "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" by C.S. Lewis landed in my hands when I was in first grade. I couldn't put the book down, and have been an avid reader since. I still fondly remember many nights when my mother would beg me, not to turn off the TV, but to put my book down to join the family for dinner. The charm of books is a fabulous one - it expands the limits of your imagination, and opens the door to a world of possibilities.
Whatever circumstances life presents you, a book can be your escape, your solace, and your hope for a different future. CODE, as an organization, is one I'm very proud to support and to link with my company. Literacy is often overlooked, but is so vital for the livelihood of millions of children worldwide. Millions of children worldwide who, without this organization, may never know the empowerment that comes from literacy - confidence, creativity and knowledge that will have an immeasurable and positive influence in their lives.

P.S. Did I mention I created a special edition print where 100% of the proceeds get donated to CODE?
Plus, if you add any other items to your cart, mention "code" during your checkout and 10% of the proceeds of your entire order will also be donated to this wonderful organization.
