Help Us Get Books Into Kids' Hands


We have recently discovered a fantastic website with a noble purpose.  WeGiveBooks.org, created by Penguin and The Pearson Foundation, are allowing you to read some of their classic stories online and when you click DONATE at the end of your reading, a book will be donated to the book charity of your choice.

We think this is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to give just by doing what we all love -- reading.  So please join us at our group page to help We Give Books in their goal of donating one million books worldwide.  Z and I have chosen the Room to Read charity for our donations --
Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in developing countries by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Working in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations and governments, we develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the relevant life skills to succeed in school and beyond. 
Spreading the book love,
K and Z
