Books for the World

Hi there, a non-review post today!

Most of you don’t know, but my family has a little book charity called Books for the World that runs projects from time to time helping to get books to those who need them.

Our latest project is helping our friends at Sekolah Gunung Merapi in Indonesia raise money to buy textbooks, fill a library and pay for much needed repairs to their school in a town ravaged in 2010 by volcanic eruptions.

You can read all about the story, the campaign and how you can help here:
