This is Andrew, he is 11 years old. He started this great project in 2005. Called Andrews Book's. He collects children's books for schools in isolated first nations communities in Canada. He started with just collecting books from kids at his own birthday party. So no toys for him, he would just request books from his party guests to help other children out! Can you believe it?? So sweet. |
This year he had hoped to beat his record of 300 books from last year. Sadly so far only 75 books have been collected. And not very much in dollars has been donated. So terrible! Andrew has a website here, Andrew's Books. You can find more about his project there & his goals. Also a paypal button if you are so kind to help this little guy reach his goal.
These are the children that he is helping this year. They live in Attawapiskat, Ontario, It's very sad the conditions that these children have to learn in, in our very OWN country. They have been fighting for a new school for a while, but still have not received proper funding. How could anyone say "no" to children begging for a school?!!! It's crazy & so sad.
You can see more about them & their school J.R Nakogee Elementary School here
I couldn't think of children more deserving of our help.
I'm hoping that you will check it out & help Andrew out & help other children that aren't as lucky. You can even send new
children's books to him, if you don't have paypal!
I'm going to set up a little box in Occupied to help out too!
