Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The mission of Learning Ally is to promote personal achievement when access and reading are barriers to learning by advancing the use of accessible and effective educational solutions.
Learning Ally, a national nonprofit, volunteer organization, has been the leading accessible audiobook library for students with disabilities such as visual impairment or dyslexia that make reading standard print difficult or impossible for more than 60 years. With titles available in every subject area and grade level, Learning Ally's digitally recorded audio textbooks on CD and downloadable audio textbooks help students challenged by the printed page.

I have volunteered at several studio locations over the course of my lifetime. I now have the good fortune to be employed here, and am able to do even more for this great organization.
What makes it great are the volunteers, who give their time, talent and treasure recording textbooks for any student who learns differently.
For 3 hours a week, these individuals create the materials that help students gain access to the education they deserve and to which they have a right.
Some charities provide food, or clothing, or shelter - all good and necessary things; but Learning Ally, formerly Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic, gives people a future.
I couldn't recommend it more highly.
