ABOUT THE EVENT
READING IS FUNDAMENTAL! Most of us may know this saying. Reading is important around the world. It is a skill that will prepare young students for a better life. The ability to read provides a sense of self-worth, a tool to ensure the ability to learn or to work, the ability to entertain one-self as well as others. Most importantly reading affords each one of us the ability to share views and thoughts with citizens across the globe.
Please join us for a special family fund-raising brunch at the new Kro’s Nest with great pizza, beverages, raffle prize draws with The Library Project, our featured charity for 2011.
OUR GOAL: Each Library costs roughly 10,000 CNY. Our goal on April 17th is to raise enough funds to donate one library in the Hebei Province. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit the Japanese Red Cross to support relief efforts in Japan caused by the earthquake and tsunami.
ABOUT THE LIBRARY PROJECT
The Library Project donates books and libraries to underfinanced schools and orphanages in China. By the end of 2011, the goal is to have donated over 500 libraries to countryside elementary schools. Plans are to have donated 750 libraries by the end of 2012. Your support is greatly appreciated!
