Bob Dylan to help teach Canadians to read

Singer donates money to charity

Bob Dylan is set to help teach families to read by raising money for the Raise a Reader charity in Canada.

The singer will be giving away some of the money he earns from ticket sales for his Canadian tour which starts in October.

Raise a Reader has raised more than $10 million over the past six years to help literacy groups and families in Canada.

Michael Buble, Anne Murray and James Taylor have all given the charity money as part of a campaign to get big names in music to help the charity out.
