Ethiopia Reads is a fantastic organization that collaborates with Ethiopian communities to build schools, plant libraries, teach teachers, boost literacy and provide youth and families with the tools to improve their lives. They do amazing work and I am thrilled to be able to support them.
This year, I am participating in fundraising efforts for Ethiopia Reads in three different ways...
- I've donated the Barefoot Books World Travelers' Library to the silent auction at the Open Hearts Big Dreams event in Seattle on December 13th. If you are in the Seattle area and want to attend the event in person, you can purchase tickets at this link.
- Can't make it to Seattle? Then bid on the very same gift set - plus three other books set in Africa - at the online Auction for Education in Ethiopia which also benefits Ethiopia Reads
- Finally, if you'd like to get some holiday shopping done while also contributing to a good cause, use this link to shop at my Barefoot Books online shop and I will donate 20% of every purchase to Ethiopia Reads! The online fundraiser will run from December 6th to December 15th, and if you are shopping for Christmas make sure to place your order before 11AM Eastern time on December 15th so your gifts will arrive in time.
Thanks so much for helping me bring literacy to the country where my daughter was born - Amesege'nallo!
