Chuck Leavell, keyboardist for music act The Rolling Stones, apparently aware of what his community needs. The man realizes the importance of knowledge for his country's future generation and thus bringing into life his realization.
Leavell will on Wednesday April 26th, 2006 read to second graders at DeLisle/Pass Christian Elementary School as part of a nationwide book relief effort for students affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. He will read the book "The Tree Farmer," which he wrote alongside Nicholas Cravotta.
"All of the libraries and schools that were devastated in the hurricane are suffering for the books that they need to get to children and I am very proud to be apart of this to restore it," so Leavell said in a statement.
On top of that, there are about 10,000 copies of Leavell's book and 100,000 other new books will be given to students through a donation from The Abundant Forests Alliance (AFA) which then will donate the books to First Book, a nonprofit organization that provides books to children in need.
