Imagine your daily life, the information you process, the decisions you make and the actions you take based on your decisions. Now imagine doing all of these things while being unable to read. Well, you’ve successfully imagined the daily lives of nearly 100 million people, half the adult population in the United States.
That’s why we created the Wish You Well Foundation®: to combat illiteracy in America. Through our foundation, funds are awarded to help provide literacy solutions. To date, the Wish You Well Foundation® has awarded funds in more than 40 states.
The ability to read is the foundation for everyday life. Indeed, virtually none of the major issues we face as a nation today can be successfully overcome until we eradicate illiteracy. Together with your support, we will win this war.
