NelsonMandela2Give the gift of literacy and reading this year… one book at a time we can change the world.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”  Nelson Mandela.  Let’s continue Mandela’s vision.

Our world is a better place because of Nelson Mandela.  Forgiveness. Hope. Acceptance. Peace. Community. Empowerment. Literacy. A few of the many global changes that Nelson Mandela inspired.

Literacy is not just about the ability to read and write.  It is also about having the skills to understand what you read, communicate with others and engage fully and confidently in life’s activities and opportunities – at work, at home and in the community. (ABC Life Literacy).

Please consider donating your old books to charities that can benefit from them. Especially children’s books. For middle class kids, they have on average 12 age appropriate books. However, for the underprivileged kids, they have 1 age appropriate book for every 300 kids! WHOA! We have to do something to address that.

If you are interested to see how you can help with this, please send me a direct message. Maybe we can collaborate to make a huge difference this year in children’s lives.

With peace and gratitude,
