There are 450 million children in Africa and although they are usually educated in reading and writing they have often never held a book. The Books for Africa organization is working to end this African Book Famine. I believe strongly in this endeavour and ask for your support. It only costs 50 cents to send a book and it may well be read by 50 children. The organization has warehouses in St Paul and Atlanta with over a million books which have been donated to the African continent but are stranded here for lack of funds.
