We are asking the WALK team to raise $1,000 in pledges per participant towards their commitment to walk across the island of Zanzibar, Tanzania. The pledges will fund a shipment of books to the island prior to the WALK. One dollar sponsors two schoolbooks!

(Cheques to fulfill pledges can be mailed to the BOOKS FOR AFRICA office at 253 East 4th Street St. Paul, MN 55101. This will save the processing fees charged on this website. Put WARTH (or name of another walker you are sponsoring)/ ZANZIBAR on the memo line of the cheque. Thank you!

    THANK YOU,THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all the walking you did and all the books we are now going to send. Counting all the sponsorships and additional container commitments we got we are pushing $80,000 raised. A good job and a good time! Tom

    Thanks so much Team! It is all now but a memory but one which will surely be with us for ever. Richard is making a couple of videos, one for a BOOKS FOR AFRICA promo and one for you Walkers. Counting sponsorships and outside Razoo donations I think we could reach $70,000. We will be arranging a St Paul prty shortly! Tom
