Logo for The Global Oasis Literacy FoundationHaving been a literacy advocate for decades, I’ve now started my own nonprofit. The Global Oasis Literacy Foundation (G.O.L.F.) is committed to helping people from all walks of life–but especially disadvantaged youth–become more empowered through reading.

  • 40% of students can’t read at a basic level.
  • Almost 70% of low-income 4th grade students cannot read at a basic level.
  • 2 million students drop out of high school each year. That’s 7,000 a day or one every 26 seconds.

That’s why I’m committed to promoting the thousands of free programs around the country helping fight illiteracy–so people can get help and/or volunteer.
