ReadBAMARead is a non-profit organization that was formed within weeks of the devastating April 27, 2011 tornado outbreak that not only ripped through the heart of Tuscaloosa and surrounding cities, but also completely devastated local school libraries. The mission of ReadBAMARead is simply to replace more than 280,000 school library books that were destroyed by the tornado.

BIRDIES FOR CHARITY
"Together, anything's possible" the PGA TOUR's and Champions Tour's charitable platform that focuses on the efforts of our players, tournaments, volunteers, sponsors, fans and charities. The Champions Tour's charitable mission is an integral component of its value proposition and charitable donations have a significant impact in the communities served by Champions Tour events. ReadBAMARead is proud to partner with Birdies for Charity to meet that goal!
ReadBAMARead is going strong! About to launch the next chapter. Stay tuned. But for now, check this out:
Library style books cost approximately $15-20 each. Our goal is to raise $150,000 in order to have funds for the libraries to purchase approximately 10,000 books. We want contributors to know that their donations are for a specific need and at the same time they are facilitating the education of the young children that benefit from our foundations gifts.
Our mission is to provide funds for the school libraries that were affected by the April 27th Tuscaloosa tornados to purchase "NEW" library quality books.
