The charity I would choose to receive up to $500 in books would be United Through Reading. I would love to be able to help give books to children to instill a love of reading. United Through Reading gives books to children whose families are separated and encourage them to read aloud together so that they may continue to bond with those parents who are over seas. According to their website, they offer "deployed parents the opportunity to be video-recorded reading storybooks to their children". I think this is fantastic and I would love to be able to give this charity up to $500 worth of books for these children.
If you would like to know more about this organization, or would like to donate, visit the website at http://www.unitedthroughreading.org/
