Dear Members and Friends,
It’s the time of year when you may be looking for thoughtful gifts for those dear to you. Consider giving the gift of literacy this holiday season by supporting Librarians Without Borders’ work with the Asturias Academy library in Guatemala. How? There are two quick and easy ways.
Foremost, we’re excited to announce that all proceeds of the newly published book “Inspiring Hope: One Story at a Time” will go to our Guatemala program. This anthology of 75 startlingly honest stories focuses on the eternal question: What gives you hope? Included is a chapter written by our very own Librarians Without Borders volunteer Samhita Gupta on her experience volunteering at Asturias.
Purchase the book on Amazon for all the bibliophiles in your life.
American and International orders: Amazon.com – Inspiring Hope
Canadian orders: Amazon.ca – Inspiring Hope
Second, you can give directly to the Librarians Without Borders’ Guatemala program using PayPal. We’ll recognize your donation by sending a personalized letter of thanks to your book club, workplace, student group — whomever!
To see the library that your donations will support, look at these photo albums, which document the growth of our Guatemala library program. Thanks to support from our members and volunteers, we’ve been able to build a library at the heart of a school in need.
Donations will help us continue our work to build libraries and a culture of literacy on the ground in Guatemala.
Thank you for your generosity!
Melanie Sellar & Mark Gelsomino
