Couture Allure Supports Reading Is Fundamental

I was a painfully shy child. I found comfort in reading. Books were my friends, stories were my playmates, reading taught me about the world.  Children's literacy is near and dear to my heart.  But we can't encourage our children to read if they have no books.

Reading Is Fundamental is an A-rated charity that works to motivate young children to read by working with them, their parents, and community members to make reading a fun and beneficial part of everyday life.  They work to put books in the hands of children who don't have them.

From September 1 - December 31, 2014, 10% of all sales at Couture Allure, SewHallie and through my retail shops goes directly to Reading Is Fundamental to support their programs.  If you feel strongly about children's literacy, I hope you'll consider a donation to this important charity.  Thank you!
