Reading Elephant Laos

42348994_1569679405137808_r.jpegHello friends,
As many of you may remember, about 1.5 years ago, I was traveling throughout South East Asia. During that time, I was lucky enough to stumble upon a small, grassroots organization called Reading Elephant. Reading Elephant is spearheaded by a man named Keo, who simply wants to help the children in his town gain access to books. As a reading teacher, I believe that all children everywhere should have access to quality literature. During fall of 2018, I began to fundraise for Reading Elephant, and through your generous donations, I was able to raise over $500USD. This went a long way towards assisting the organization and allowing it to remain operational. This year, I have been honored to be asked by the Reading Elephant group in Laos and in Berlin to be the US Ambassador for Reading Elephant. If you would like to donate to a wonderful organization that is doing great things for children, please consider Reading Elephant. I have attached a video which will help you to better understand the educational situation, as well as some pictures of my time with the sweet children there. Any and all donations (no matter how small) are greatly appreciated. Thank you! Please feel free to read more about Reading Elephant at
