The Barbara Bush Foundation For Family Literacy Announces The Winners Of The Devotedly, Dad Letter Contest

         

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., June 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- To celebrate Father's Day weekend, the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy proudly announces the winners of the first annual Devotedly, Dad Letter contest.  The foundation asked fathers and grandfathers to write letters to their children and grandchildren about the importance of literacy in their lives. 

The foundation received hundreds of letters from across the country and selected two winners from almost every state.  The winners will receive an autographed copy of President George H.W. Bush's book All the Best, My Life in Letters and Other Writings and a pair of the president's signature colorful socks. 

"Literacy starts at home.  We at the foundation encourage parents and grandparents to give the gift of reading and writing to their families," stated Liza McFadden, Executive Director of the Barbara Bush Foundation.   "The fathers and grandfathers who submitted letters shared inspirational stories of their love of literacy, which is essential in building stronger families and communities."

Illiteracy is a growing crisis in the United States.  Over 33 million adults can not read or write.  The foundation is committed to ending illiteracy. Since 1989, the Barbara Bush Foundation has provided funding and support to nearly 1,000 family literacy programs across the country, where parents and their children learn together.
