I decided to start Books For Bedtime because I have always had a passion for reading and am very privileged to have the resources and access to books that I have. My mom has taught in very urban schools since I was just a small child. When I went to work with her on days I didn't have school, I was able to see just how different my life was from those of her students. Where I had hundreds of books in my room at home, some of her kids didn't have even one book in their whole house. I give books away across the state of Ohio and anywhere they are needed. So far, I have donated over 70,000 books!
I was look at you organization and it looks sooo cool!! I would be absolutely be intersted in working with you to help get books to people all over the world! Please contact me at email@example.com... we could definitely help you in the book area! I also have some other conacts who are pretty well versed in the easiest (and cheapest) ways of shipping books overseas, so perhaps we could get in contact with them?
I am also in Columbus! I have an organization called Books For Bedtime ! My goal is to get books into the hands of children who need them while inspiring youth to start their own initiatives! I have given away over 70,000 books so far... perhaps e could work together? Maybe the women and their kids in your Care Center could take books with them? I know reading is a great way to escape from reality for a while! If you are interested in a partnership/collaboration please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I love what you guys are doing for the community! It is so important for kids to be exposed to sports like soccer! In the future it might be cool if you expanded your outreach into other sports (lacrosse field hockey, baseball?)! Keep up the great work!!
