Dabs & Company

Dabs &  Company Dabs & Company Dabs & Company is an amalgamation of like-minded folk with a strong interest in art and culture. Some of the services we provide are: poetry and book readings writing visual art book reviews publishing "first edit" services design of educational aids and activities We are also about connecting "others with others" - not just for mutual benefit alone, but because we feel it is the right thing to do.

Everyone has a gift to share and it's not always about the money!

Mission: We are fanatics about increasing literacy among our youth! Our motto is PROMOTE LITERACY! KEEP A MIND LIT! We say "keep a mind lit" because children are like the flame of a campfire. Once that flame is created it requires nurturing and protection to continuously burn. Some flames may need more or less tending to stay lit. However, we believe in constant, personalized reinforcement so each flame may burn its brightest! If you or your organization are involved with uplifting YOUTH, please post to this page as well as to others because there can never be too many connections for something so precious! We also like to feature MENTORS so please post information about anyone or any group you know of that is donating their time to uplift a young person. [Any posts not relating toward the above will be deleted.]

Had a great thing happen at the Passport to Africa event today!
Got another one!
It happens almost every time. A mom comes up with her male child telling me in different styles - usually a minor display of exasperation - how she wants to get him reading more.
So ... I whip out The Magic Pencil, open it to the notorious Chapter 15, ask the son to start reading, and wait.
When he TURNS the page, I alert the mother and 99% of the time, they buy the book!
I swear, when I get financially fit, I will GIVE children who dare to read it for me a FREE copy! (I've only done it about 4 times, so far.)
