Help me ship children’s books to Jamaica. Schools across Jamaica are in need of support to improve the literacy level of elementary students. Share your love for reading by giving a donation to purchase and ship children’s books to Jamaica.

I have already worked with a local elementary school to collect over 350 books. Your donations will help me ship these books to Jamaica. Additional funding received will go to purchase additional books to ship. Collected books will be shipped to a Jamaican school -- targeting Clarke’s Town Primary School, an urban school in Jamaica.

This is all part of my senior project. The idea for my senior project combined my avid love for reading with the lasting inspiration from a mission trip I took to Jamaica a few years ago with my youth group. During my trip, I was able to interact with children all over the island. Reflecting back now, I never believed that one week could change my life forever, but my experience in Jamaica was so utterly inspiring that as I go forward with my life I want to give back to the place that changed me with such intensity. Remembering my interactions with the Jamaican children inspired me to create a plan to help insure their future education with reading materials. I aim to give a small portion of their changes in me back to them.

Any help you can give is much appreciated!
