Actual programs here in Utah where:
1. A 7-11 in Provo, Utah will give a Slurpee to a kid if they read a book and tell a 7-11 employee about it.
(To be generous, the kid could get a balloon instead. But which do you think they're going to pick?)
2. Dads go to their kid's elementary schools and read to them. They are rewarded with donuts. Really. "Donuts with Dad".
You make your choices, and you live with them. In the end, you are those choices.
