Hey all, just got the latest news from Books for Africa via their Fall Newsletter and it’s very exciting!
First of all, BFA has shipped 17.5 million primary, secondary, post-secondary and library books to 35 (that’s right, 35!) countries since 1988. This year alone they sent 119 containers to 22 different countries from Angola to Kenya to Zimbabwe and more.
In addition, to all of you Books For Africa supporters out there, go to www.betterworld.com/bfa when you want to buy books and click on the BFA logo, this will ensure that the proceeds put towards a literacy partner of any book that you purchase will go to Books for Africa!
Also, Books for Africa’s Donor Appreciation Day will be on Sasturday, November 17th from 3:30 – 6:30 at 715 East Minnehaha Ave, St. Paul, MN 55106. Music, refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres will be provided along with a warehouse open house to “see what all the excitement is about!” Volunteers, donors and friends are all invited!
