Jeferson is so excited about the potential of having a library at the community center. He
likes to read, but doesn’t get an opportunity to read books very often. He is usually limited
to one page stories printed off the internet. This book drive could be a life-changer for
him. Thank you for believing and investing in Jeferson!

Thanks so much for all you do, Pernille, with enthusiastic and genuine passion for a desire to make the world a better place. You ARE making the world a better place.
Thanks also for this opportunity in Guatemala. As a parent of a daughter adopted from Guatemala (who is a voracious reader coincidentally â long story short: Her birth grandparents had to âsignâ the paper work as birth mum was under age 18 and the birth grandfatherâs signature is a thumbprint due to illiteracy. Seeing his genetic offspring devour words upon words upon words has more than once moved me to tearsâ¦.tears of sadness, tears of hope, tears of thankfulnessâ¦well, guess my story IS getting longâº!), thank you for bringing books into the hands of children and families in a country in need.

We were so excited that this first week our class has already raised nearly $200, with more fundraisers planned for future weeks. The kids learn so much by putting in hard work to make this happen.
