...and a brand new website!
I'm pleased to announce that the Pay It Forward Foundation has a new direction, a new executive director, and a brand new website that better defines our work and goals.
First I want to thank Charley Johnson, whom many of you know, and Kerry Taylor, who worked behind the scenes for many years as part-time director. Both have decided it's time for them to move on, but both were nice enough to stay in place to smooth the transition.
Then I want to introduce you to David Goodwin, our new full-time executive director. I also want to show you the website he created for our foundation. We are turning a huge amount of our focus toward our Young Readers Book Program. For those of you who haven't read the earlier posts about it, it's a program in which the foundation acquires discounted copies of Pay It Forward: Young Readers Edition and donates them to classrooms at no charge. Sounds too good to be true... and in some ways it is... but only to this extent: there are only just so many books we can afford to buy at this point. We are counting on you for small donations, and for spreading the word that they are needed, and how much good they will do.
Please take a look at our brand new website at www.payitforwardfoundation.org, and join us if you can!
