Dear Gentle Readers,
I was wondering if you would be able to help out a Peace Corps Volunteer in Lesotho. As you might remember that I made a trip out to Lesotho in January and spent time with a few Peace Corps Volunteers that are working with teachers in a number of villages throughout the country.
In the file that is called "This is a Small World," I received an e-mail from someone I used to work with on nonprofit issues in the early 90's. She works at Dart Containers in Mason, Michigan and her colleague was asking the employees if they would be interested in helping set up a small children's library that is being developed by a Peace Corp Volunteer named Casey in Lesotho. I didn't have the chance to meet Casey but I did meet a number of Casey's friends and fellow volunteers and they are doing important work in this rural country.
My friend and her husband have collected a number of books but are having a hard time with the postage. They have enough books to fill 11 cartons but the shipping costs are around $50 (US) a carton. She asked me if I knew of anybody who could help out and I immediately thought of YOU, the fans of Singh Around the World.
It is too strange that someone who has been following my blog knows a Peace Corps Volunteer, who is collecting books in the same country that I was in a few weeks ago. If you can help them with a donation of $25, $50 or $100. Let me know and I will connect you to the person who is sending the books. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. We only need to raise $500. It will help the children in this small village in Lesotho and be a great way for us to give back. Can you help us?
