I'm a children's author and freelance writer who supports the mission of Everybody Wins! USA. Everybody Wins! is a great nonprofit because it matches low-income students with much-needed mentors. It helps raise awareness about the importance of reading, the issues surrounding children’s literacy and the community benefits of mentoring. I'm very impressed with the organization because it stays in constant contact with its affiliates and supporters and always accepts ideas and feedback that can strengthen the organization.
