To share with some poor kids the gift of a good book.
Let us be kids again to dust off picture pages
because with little things like these, we can make big changes!"
NOTE: This is a book drive. Not just a one-day event ;)
For my birthday this year, I want to invite all of you to set the calendar back to 1990-something and unearth those Nancy Drew's, Winnie the Pooh's, Adventures of Mr. This and Ms. That, Dr. Seuss's, A-B-C's, Almanacs, and every and any children's book you've ever had. Don't let them go unused this year; let them make someone as happy as they had made you. And let that someone be a less fortunate child.
In line with my advocacy, the Kristiyano-Islam (KRIS) Peace Library, that works towards peace and progress through education, I'd like to knock into your hearts this year to ask for your old children's books. Every last piece will go to the poor beneficiaries of the KRIS Library in Quezon City, Rizal, and Zamboanga. Your old books will be shiny, happy, new treasures in their hands!
Whether you give 1 book, 7 books, or 17 books, you're totally making my birthday this year. ;)
Plus! There might be a book-reading/story-telling session for the same kids in the end of October (sembreak!) so please, stay tuned.
Books may be given to me in UP Diliman. Just text me (09995609435). They may also be brought to our house -- 9 Dona Isidora Street, Don Antonio Heights, Diliman, Quezon City. I'll be accepting 'til forever actually so you can just keep giving. :))
It's time to be a kid again and do the one thing we don't do as much anymore now that we're grown up--and that is: SHARE. ;)
