Hello, friends! 

I just got back from vacation and am excited that there is less than a month until Leap for Literacy!  I had a chance to zipline in Kauai!  I considered that good “practice” for my skydive! 

I have to admit that I was pretty nervous when I stepped off of the treetop platform. I imagined how I would feel when I step out of the airplane door on September 8!  But once I got going, I felt like I was flying!  I can’t wait to have that feeling again—this time from 13,000 feet!

Thanks again for your support!

It feels great to know that I am raising funds for the San Diego Council on Literacy.  

The 27 affiliated literacy programs are doing such great work every day to help adults and families
improve their literacy skills.  One of my learners, Cameron, a single dad, now reads to his elementary school-age daughter every night at bedtime. 

Another learner, Christine, told me that she never thought she would ever be able to read, and now she loves to read! 

Please support the San Diego Council on Literacy by making your donation to Leap for Literacy today! -- Carrie

Dear Friends, 

Wow! Thank you for your tremendous support for Leap for Literacy to support the San Diego Council on Literacy! Some of you have asked me whether this is my husband’s idea—after all, he is an experienced skydiver! But, no, it is 100% my idea! Please join me and the San Diego Council on Literacy in enhancing the availability and quality of literacy services throughout our region by donating to Leap for Literacy. 

Your support means so much!

My husband is an avid skydiver, so when I told him I was thinking of jumping out of an airplane to celebrate my 25th year as a literacy volunteer, we knew who to turn to: Tsunami Skydivers!

If you'd like to join me in my Leap for Literacy, Tsunami Skydivers is offering discounted tandem skydives on Sept 8! They also will donate $20 per tandem jumper. Exciting! 

Of course, if jumping out of an airplane at 13,000 ft doesn't appeal to you, you always can make a donation instead! :)
