It´s your trurn to help...
I´m looking for a little help getting my hands on some books down here for some kids. The problem is books down here run a little pricey (for me) to buy a bunch of them. The kids have an interest in reading, but they just don´t have to books, and neither do the schools. If anybody would like to help out, financially, there´s some info down towarsd the bottom about sending money.
In case your asking yourself about if it´s worthwhile, I´ll tell you that I tried it out with a couple books that I had bought. One was this old Alfred Hitchcock story about these kid detectives (I never knew he did this, either) and the other was another kids book. I let some kids, mainly abuot 10-14 borrow them and bring them back when they finished. A couple kids read the Hitchcock book in just 2 days. And the books always came back in the same condition they left in.
Anyways, I´m looking to getting around buying some more books that they may enjoy.
Example. I know this one kid wants to learn more about ancient Egypt....and he also is interested the Free Trade Agreement (Trato de Libre Comercio).
Since I´m now reading book 7 of Harry Potter (awesome, bu the way), I think the series would kickstart their imagination.
Anyways, you get the point. If you could spare a few bucks or so, that´d be awesome.
Just send me an email to let me know what´s coming. They money will be put into my PC account that I use down here.
oh, and its tax deductable....
Thanks a bunch.
