Reading, writing and books were something I needed to conquer. For as far back as I can remember I had a hard time reading and comprehending. It was so challenging. I wanted to be so smart that I'd do things that made me appear to be smart, like wear glasses, carry lots of books and enter every contest that required writing. I didn't realize all the things I was doing were helping me learn and get over my fears. Even though I had challenges, I eventually got my rhythm with reading and comprehension, even to the point of learning to speed read. I ended up learning that if it wasn't quiet, I had to read a book twice to comprehend what it actually was about. My love for reading and books is in my DNA now because of my determination and fear.
I'm so proud of how far I've come and being 55 years old means that It's taken me that long to learn all of these things. It takes time to hone in on your craft. I've mastered reading and a love for books and this is why I write books and give them away at every opportune time. Books are so beautiful and I want to drop a book in the lap of everyone. Droppin' Books Like Albums (#droppinbookslikealbums) and Give without Ceasing (#GiveWithoutCeasing) are two of my mottos. I'm going to do these two things until I can't do it anymore.

The Michelle Hardy Organization Inc. (MichelleHardy.org) is a nonprofit founded by Michelle Tamiko Hardy a philanthropist, author, inspirational speaker, and producer. Michelle has had a passion for writing since she was a young child. As her writing developed, she realized many things she wrote about began to come to fruition in her everyday life. This is when she realized how powerful literacy and spreading kindness in the world is and the Michelle Hardy organization was formed.
Through literacy the mission of Michelle Hardy Organization helps to build resilience in children, strengthens families and empowers communities to give from the heart through random acts of kindness.
The vision of the Michelle Hardy Organization is to offer a continuous book giving portal that allows educators and storytellers an opportunity to go into classrooms and share not only books but educate students on how to give without ceasing by performing Random Acts of Kindness daily. We introduce students to a live auction that encourages literacy skills including decision making, mathematical, empathy and communication skills, where they experience hands-on tools to use immediately.
