I'm proud to be a Board Member for Pathways to Global Literacy, an amazing non-profit working to promote literacy through establishing & supporting libraries in developing countries.
This year, we're launching our first holiday campaign: Bins of Books! For a $200 donation, we'll ship an entire bin of books to one of our libraries in the Dominican Republic. Each bin holds 80 books, and helps empower young women and children with knowledge, giving them confidence and skills they can take into their communities. Pathways to Global Literacy has been working for years with teams of committed librarians to promote libraries as more than just "rooms holding books," but spaces for information sharing, community gathering, and skills training.
Your gift this holiday is a direct way to contribute to this exciting work, and to share a love of reading with young women and children around the world.
Checks can be made to: "Pathways to Global Literacy,” and mailed to 1517 W Richmond St, Arlington Heights, IL 60004. Please mark "bins of books" in the memo.
And, of course, any amount is helpful.
Thank you, thank you! Happy holidays!
