About Kids Need to Read:
The Kids Need to Read Foundation was established in August 2007 by The Softwire series author PJ Haarsma and actor Nathan Fillion. Kids Need to Read raises money to buy books through bi-weekly auctions on eBay, which have proven very popular among fans of Firefly/Serenity and science fiction, as well as literacy advocates. A CafePress store selling literacy-themed merchandise and “Kindness is a Strength” items helps to raise additional funds for Kids Need to Read. Various fundraising events lend additional support to the organization.
