A Generous Gift of Books

Tags : 

At my high school, as a final evaluation we have to create a unique, personal project. Being a big bookworm, I chose to do it on literacy and how important it is. I noticed how many books I had that were already read and just uselessly gathering dust and thought about how I could find a way to give them a second life while promoting literacy. With a little research, I found out about this great non-profit organization called The Learning Exchange that had the exact same goal of promoting literacy and accepted book donations! I then talked to my school board about it and they let me host a used book drive. For a few days I hung signs and passed messages about my project to my classmates, teachers, friends and family. I was able to collect over 550 books for The Learning Exchange. It made me so happy to see how generous people ended up being and that I could, in fact, make such a precious donation and maybe help some of the TLE students find the passion in reading that I have!
