Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Hello Leo!! Your generosity on behalf of English literacy is very kind. Just in case not enough folk seem to say so, then please let me say "Thank You". It is a great benevolence that you make this offer and follow through with it. Noticing that your awards tend to be mostly for organizations North of the Mason-Dixon line, I am encouraged to stick around for a year or two and to try to keep in touch with the town where I grew up so I can nominate a worthwhile organization in or around Dallas TX (most especially Oak Cliff, where I mastered Yinglish) to be recognized in coming years. The [magnanimous] Sunset High School Alumni association comes to mind immediately, so I will work with its officers and directors to try to document to you that it is indeed a worthy nominee.
Thanks & All th' e-Best,

Very nice! I appreciate your newsletter even more now knowing that it helps support these fine causes.
You show up many much bigger organizations by passing on your good fortune. Glad to see an Ontario literacy organization made it to your list as well. Thanx from a Canadian and an Ontarian.
Leo, I've enjoyed your newsletter and ancillary web info sites for about a year now. Your 2010 grants have so impressed me that I intend to hop on over to your "shop" and support your effort through a purchase. Best wishes for continued success.
Leo - On behalf of everyone at Whatcom Literacy Council, I want to thank you for your generous grant award. I can't tell you how lovely it was to open up an email telling me that we had just received $2500 through our online donation button. With your help we will continue to empower adults in Whatcom County to achieve their goals and change their lives through literacy. Thank you for being a partner in this important work!
With sincere thanks,
Whatcom Literacy Council
Leo, thank you for your generosity to these literacy organizations. I work with a couple of non-profits in Texas (Literacy Connexus and Literacy Texas) and know how difficult fundraising is.
I'm so glad the organization I recommended, Family Literacy Center of Lapeer MI won (my hometown)! They so need it! Thanks Leo!
I loved reading about your generous gifts that occurred in 2010, your "year of helping," and for such great causes!! And you included a senior computer class as well... I think we often forget that inability to read at any age truly is a concern.
Your gifts and their causes were awesome...
