A month ago, my 9 yr old asked to donate her used books to Roseau Primary school. I was very surprised - she hates to part with her prized possessions. Then she asked if we could encourage more children to do so. She started "Kiera's Kids Book Club" to encourage people to donate new and used books.
I have received messages from Delroy @ the National Youth Council to help organize and distribute the books once they get to DA. Thanks Del!
In the course of the last month, we have collected close to 300 books. Yesterday, I received a message from a wonderful young lady, Arlene Alexander who works for a publishing company. She has BOXES & BOXES of books. Thanks Arlene.
Shipping is a challenge - BUT WE CANNOT AFFORD TO LET THIS OPPORTUNITY GO TO WASTE!
If you are in the US and wish to send books, which I will ship directly to DA, please ship to:
c/o The Granite Shop, 1124 Harpeth Industrial Court, Franklin, TN 37064
I am seeking help of shippers - freight forwarders - ANYTHING! There has to be a way for us to come together to get these books to kids in DA, please.
To send books from any other part of the world - DIRECTLY TO DA - please send to:
The National Youth Council is:
