     I am collecting childrens' books to start a library in Ixopo, South Africa. The Qoyintaba Primary School has been given a shipping container by the Mandela Day Library Project, and my project is to donate 1,000 books for the children who attend the school and for the other residents who are learning to read. Most of the people who live in the area struggle to come up with funds for transportation into the nearest city in order to access the library there, so this library will really make a difference in this very rural community.

     Shipping 1,000 soft-bound books to Africa costs about $500, and since some of the books that have already been donated are hard-bound, I know I'll probaby need more than that. 

     Thank you so much for your support; Even a few dollars will be appreciated.
