I am big on education, especially literacy. If we all are literate, then we won’t have the kind of elected officials that we have now. If the surveys are to be believed, just imagine how Erap even figured on the list as one of the leading candidates for presidency in the 2010 Elections. But that’s another story.
Let me go back to a much worthy news, the Pizza Hut Book It! program.
I went to their website, and what I saw were great opportunities to help build literacy. There are programs for school administrators, teachers, and parents. It’s cool.
The latest news says that Pizza Hut Book It! donates books to Kids Foundation.

Recently, Pizza Hut’s Book It! Program showed these out of school children that Pizza Hut cares by granting some of their wishes to enable them to go back to school this year.
Pizza Hut Book It! Program, in partnership with the Department of Education, collaborated with National Book Store Foundation Inc. and donated school bags with study packs and reading books to KIDS Foundation for its upcoming event this July and September dubbed “TREK,” which will benefit far-flung public schools in the Philippines.
When: June 07, 2009, 6AM at Roxas Boulevard.
Contribution: Php150.00 (It will help the school children in the conflict-ridden areas of North Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat in Mindanao.)
