Still need help guys....
 
Help us help kids using the literary arts to teach at-risk youth and to recognize excellence in writing among high school students. These programs are national models of how to do it right. These programs are changing lives through literary arts. If you support arts in education, you will love these programs that are privately funded.

The literary arts can help kids live better lives, be more productive members of society and generally succeed more often. Help me support a couple of really important programs that are national models of success. Read about them in Razoo and help us build the next generation of writers.
