Subject:  Dr. Seuss Fund Donation

February 2, 1999

Dear SignWriting List Members:
As you know, our nonprofit organization, the Center For Sutton Movement
Writing, is supported by small grants. Occasionally supporters request
public acknowledgment for their donations.

Mrs. Audrey Geisel's late husband is the world-famous author of children's
books, Dr. Seuss. Mrs. Geisel has been instrumental in funding literacy
projects, libraries and other educational projects. Recently Mrs. Geisel,
through the Dr. Seuss Fund, donated a small sum to our SignWriting Literacy
Project. The San Diego Foundation, which manages the Dr. Suess Fund, has
requested that we announce Mrs. Geisel's donation publicly "to assist in
building new funds for community needs".

You can read our announcement on this web page:

SignWriting Literacy Project

Here is what it says on the web:

December, 1998
The San Diego Foundation Dr. Seuss Fund, at the recommendation of Mrs.
Audrey Geisel, funded one school participating in the SignWriting Literacy
Project, for the 1999 Spring semester. The funds will help our Deaf Action
Committee For SignWriting (the DAC) donate SignWriting books, videos and
software to 25 deaf children, and assist their teachers with technical
support. The funds will also help with the costs of publishing and
disseminating feedback from the teachers, for the benefit of future
classrooms. Thank you, Mrs. Geisel, for your continued support of our
SignWriting Literacy Project!
