Birthday boy gives gift of reading
Dailey children donate to COAD/RSVP Books on the Bus program
Giving to others was what Jackson area brother and sister Brady Dailey (second from left) and Addyson Dailey (third from left) recently decided to do as a goodwill act of giving. In conjunction with Brady’s recent birthday party, Brady and Addyson asked guests to bring books rather than traditional gifts, which the kids then donated to the Books on the Bus program.

The gifts of giving, providing a history lesson and extending friendship were displayed by a Jackson brother-and-sister duo at -- of all places -- the young boy's own birthday party.

Recently, Brady Dailey and his sister, Addyson Dailey, the children of Jackson area residents, Jason and Erin Dailey, collected books about the late civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr. The collection was then donated to the Retired Senior Volunteer Program's Books on the Bus program. The youngsters were recently honored for their efforts by COAD/RSVP of the Ohio Valley Director Susan Rogers.

Brady's birthday party was held at the Jackson Days Inn pool, on Martin Luther King Day, and instead of presents, Brady asked guests to bring him books about the late civil-rights leader. Brady stated he collected about 40 books, which he, in turn, donated to the Books on the Bus program, which provides students with the opportunity to read books while riding the school bus.

Brady says he wants to see that the kids who ride buses have something productive to do on the bus. The students are also learning about history through reading books. He says his favorite books are the Magic Tree House series, which is about a tree house, which travels through time.

For their efforts, the Daileys were recognized by the COAD/RSVP organization for a great volunteering effort and for acting in a selfless manner. Rogers thanked the Dailey youngsters for their efforts, and explained that local children can learn a lot by volunteering and helping others.
