"For all the reasons I support AR Kids Read, what matters most is how it collectively harnesses the powers of volunteerism, civic engagement and mentoring to deliver life-changing guidance for our community's children. And it's the simplicity of cost-effectiveness of this service delivery model that makes AR Kids Read's mission one of the best charitable investments in Arkansas."

"Supporting AR Kids Read is not only my current mission, but a divine purpose over my life. I grew up loving to read and writing short novels, and that love continues to grow on a consistent basis. I believe that each child has the ability to achieve high reading levels and AR Kids Read is the unique piece to bridge that gap. I stand firm in supporting AR Kids Read, an organization that drives its mission daily with the incredible leaders and volunteers."
