Hi! I am so super excited to post about this week's Pay It Forward. It is not my idea but I'm thrilled to help.
Rachel Denning and her husband are on a mission to bring books to the world. I think this is a great idea! They are starting in the Dominican Republic where most the people are literate but can't read. Why, you ask? Due to the lack of books and libraries most citizens of the DR are unable to read. Their vision: set up a system of miniture libraries to increase book availability.
This is where we can ALL help!!
Please look around your house, local thrift store or neighbors' to find books that can be donated. Because they speak Spanish, books in Spanish are needed. Also, Rachel has requested that these books be more than simple mindless reads....she wants them to be enlightening! Any classic, non-fiction, thought provoking book is on the list!
Another avenue is to purchase some Spanish children's books from Usborne through me! If you would like to do this, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will offer you a great discount since it is for such a great cause!
