THE STORY:

Welcome to Project "Open Your Wallet"

Those who know me well know that I am a self-confessed book addict!! 

My life-long love of reading books has helped me in every aspect of my life. It became a somewhat savior when I felt like life was deteriorating around me at a young age. 

I would delve into books and consume them in order to escape from whatever was going on...and though that may seem like a "cop-out", it helped me see that one day everything would be alright...they helped open my eyes to different possibilities that a young girl in Onehunga did not dare to dream of.

“A book is like a key that fits into the tumbler of the soul. The two parts have to match in order for each to unlock. Then—click—a world opens.” 
― Brad Kessler

Supporting this organisation and raising money for them I believe will give children the opportunity to have the miracle of "travelling the world without moving their feet" that comes with reading books

So people...jump on the bandwagon, open your wallets and give so that a child somewhere may be able to dream!

Love you guys!!

“...love...it ought to be at the center of all and everything we do in our own family, in our church callings, and our livelihood. Love is the healing balm that repairs rifts in personal and family relationships. It is the bond that unites families, communities and nations. love is the power that initiates friendship, tolerance, civility, and respect. It is the source that overcomes divisiveness and hate. Love is the fire that warms our lives with unparalleled joy and divine hope. Love should be our walk and our talk.” ― Dieter F. Uchtdorf 5 years ago
