We got this email today, and couldn’t wait to share it.
“This is so exciting what your organization is doing!
My brother and I plan to give away books to children this summer. We will be working out the trunk of our cars (baby steps).
I have an idea! In the fall I will start teaching 2 classes in Anatomy/Physiology at Estrella Mountain Community College in Avondale, AZ. I plan to get other professors to start a club interested in collecting children’s books.
I believe: When we give a child a book, we give them the WORLD! The possibilities of what a child can do in life is incalculable.
This reminds me of Albert Pike – “What we do for ourselves dies with us but what we do for others, lives an eternity.”
My quote: “God gives us today to shape the future.” Or “Today is an opportunity to shape the future.”
You see, my brother and I grew up working in the fields picking all kinds of crops. For many years, every summer we traveled to the San Joaquin Valley, around Fresno to work in the grapes, peppers, figs, olives, melons tomatoes…etc. I wished could have had a book to read but
my parents could not afford such luxuries (books).
Thank you for your inspiration – You are doing a great thing.”
