The Road to Recovery
What are the funds for?
Thanks to efforts by organizations such as Books for Africa it is possible to at least begin to alleviate one of the many challenges faced by the schools in the region, which in this case is securing appropriate reading materials for students. The funds we are requesting will go directly to covering costs associated with the transportation of approximately 20,000 books. Since they can only be shipped (in bulk) by sea, the funds will cover shipping expenses from the point of departure to Mutare, Zimbabwe, costs associated with clearing customs in order to get into Zimbabwe, and transportation of the materials from Mutare to Rusape, Zimbabwe.
How you can help
Of course the easiest way to help is to click on the "share" button so that we can get our request out there, so please be liberal with the use of that button. ;-)
Any monetary donation is also much appreciated and every bit counts!
Here's a picture that an acquaintance requested. :)

As mentioned before, donations are welcome, but not mandatory. I'm happy to send any pictures your way if you want (just cover shipping).
I like coloring (as you may have picked up on by now) and I have had a few people ask if I would sell any of the pictures. No, I will not (and cannot) sell them, BUT I'm happy to give them away to anyone who wants them. I'm giving those of you who donate first dibs (just cover shipping costs and we are cool).
Take a look and if anything intrigues you let me know.
P.S. I'm also happy to do special requests e.g. if you want a particular color combo, or animal, etc. :)
P.P.S You don't HAVE to donate to get a picture, though it would be appreciated. Just let me know which one you want.
Many thanks and God bless.

*Remember* Books for Africa would be the ones providing roughly 22,000 books, with an estimated value of $250,000. In the grand scheme of things $22,000 to ship the books is a generously small fraction to guarantee students have sufficient materials to learn and progress in their studies.
