On Saturday, May 16, I’m joining SMART Reading in its first-ever virtual reading event! The event, called Oregon Reads Aloud, is a 12-hour read-a-thon aiming to raise $30,000 in crucial funding for books for the 11,000 kids served by SMART Reading this year. I hope you’ll tune in for a fun day of children’s books and supporting an organization I care deeply about. To learn more about SMART Reading, visit . Providing books for Oregon kids is critical now more than ever. Thank you for considering tuning in and supporting the campaign!
