Fundraiser + Book-Drive + Tweetup = Toys For Tots Success

It doesn't take much to touch a life... but it means so much. That's what today's story is about: how a small group of people are touching lives. I once heard it said that: if you can learn to read, you can learn anything. I believe that to be not only true, but also very powerful. That's why I love reading. A Whole New World I love traveling around and meeting new people, exploring new places and learning new things.
