Angels from America, kids library

Tom House and Scott Blodgett have founded, Angels from America! With your donations, we will open a children's library and learning center, in a Brazilian favela (slum). In the past, I have lived in Rio das Pedras, on and off, for 10 years.  I know the need up close and personal. So many of these children, are my little friends They have no library and need our help!

Our donations will open a library and learning center, available to a thousand kids. 100% of all proceeds will be used to lease a space, hire a reading teacher, buy books, tables, chairs, utilities etc.

In coordination with Cleusa Cruz ( Rio das Pedras children's advocate ), we will teach children to read.

Remember, if a child can't read, a child can't learn!

Will you please help us?
The American dollar stretches a long way in Brazil!
