The First Box Has Landed!

Jan 25, 2016 Donations, Kiribati, Library Comment

The first box has arrived in Kiribati!

I was so excited to get these pictures this last weekend! That is my dad holding the box, and those are the books that came in it. I hope to receive more pictures soon as these books go in the library (it was the weekend, so they had to wait for Monday to take them in), and I promise to share them when I do.

Two more boxes are now on their way, and hopefully those empty shelves will look a whole lot less empty in the very near future.

And because I like transparency (and lists and figures), here is what went down:

Package #1:

Included 54 books

Weighed 38 pounds

Cost $166 to send

Package #2:

Included 59 books

Weighed 42 pounds

Cost $207 to send

Package #3:

Included 45 books

Weighed 43 pounds

Cost $211 to send

[Weird that the one with the least number of books was the heaviest!]

Thank you! This is you. You made this happen. You have all made a difference in many children’s lives. And your involvement will continue to make a difference for years to come. I hope you feel that joy that I’m feeling right now. I hope it carries you through your day and leaves a goofy smile on your face like it has mine.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
