Join me, author A.S. Johnson in my efforts to support Room to Read!
Imagine a world in which every child learns to read.
Envision a world where every child has access to books.
Picture a world where all children realize their full potential.
Room to Read is committed to making these dreams a reality through its Reading Room Program, which aims to provide 13,000 communities in Asia and Africa with their first library by the end of 2011. These libraries will be filled with over 700 original children’s titles,representing 5 million books, plus 4 million donated English-language books. The libraries will also benefit from three years of librarian training and on-going support from Room to Read. Most importantly, over 6 million children in Asia and Africa will have access to life-changing educational resources.
I hope you will join me in supporting Room to Read in its effort to transform the lives of 6 million children in the developing world – one book, one child, one community at a time.
Please help me raise funds to establish a Reading Room (a library) in a school in a 3rd world nations where one doesn't exsist. It's hard for many of us to even imagine going to school and not having a library or our children not having access to a single book to read.
Many of these schools are the only one for an entire village helping education children K-12.
As a published author, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, and cousin it's hard for me to see a place where a little girl can't find a book to read, where she can't escape from reality, where she can't learn about a foriegn land, or where she can't be inspired by a single book.
Won't you please help me reach my goal of raising $5,000.00 to help a deserving school receive the joy of a library?
Any amount will help $1.00 to $100.00 is that much more towards reaching our goal and giving the gift of a library to children in need.
I'm a real person trying to help raise funds for a real school in need!
