EVENT DATE: Oct 07, 2012

THE STORY:

I am training for my 10th marathon and raising money for an excellent organization called Books for Africa.

Books for Africa collects, sorts and ships books to schools and libraries throughout Africa. For more information about Books for Africa's work, take a look at the video to the left!

This is the first time that I have raised money in conjunction with training for a marathon, and I am taking the leap because I believe so strongly in the importance of Books for Africa's work.

Books for Africa is working to ensure that kids throughout Africa have access to books and to the opportunities books provide. I often take for granted the fact that my three kids have access to books at school, at the library and at home. Books enrich my kids' lives in numerous ways. Books entertain. Books expose my kids to new people, new places and new ideas. Books enable my kids to learn to read. Books offer my kids opportunities to become doctors, scientists, teachers, etc.

50 cents sends a book to a child to Africa.

Please consider donating...

  • 10 dollars - 1 dollar per marathon.
  • 10 books - 1 book per marathon.
  • 26 dollars - 1 dollar per mile I plan to run.
  • 26 books - 1 book per mile I plan to run.
  • 50 dollars - Send 100 books to children in Africa!
  • 50 books - I was surprised by how easy it was to find 50+ gently used books on our shelves to donate to Books for Africa.

      ...or any number of dollars or used books you feel moved to donate! 

I am collecting gently used books and will deliver them to Books for Africa's St. Paul warehouse on October 7th.

Thank you!

Amy
