What HAPPY Reading Has for Me

What We Do For Others… We Do For Ourselves

As you explore articles and other features on the site, you’ll find examples of people learning about themselves, liking themselves more, because of what they do for others. Specifically, we’d like to direct you to our monthly articles, which tend to be rich with service learning stories. The fifth grade students who make sandwiches for the homeless, because of a book they read… and the students who raise money to buy books for friends they’ve never met in a storm-damaged town… you’ll find these kinds of stories on our virtual pages.

Current articles are viewable, in full, for all visitors to the site. We hope you’ll stop by often for a healthy dose of inspiration. These articles update monthly under the permanent, umbrella headings. Those headings, current articles and places of origin are:
