Why did I choose Room to Read and why should you?
of all, I became a volunteer in the beginning of 2004 because I wanted
to help those who help children. There are hundreds of organizations helping
children so that's not really a motivating factor. What is motivating
is that Room to Read believes in helping them in the long term giving
them privileges that will last several generations besides helping children
with the power of knowledge. Your donations have a permanent impact on
many future generations. Think about it! Moreover, if you get to know
the staff of Room to Read as well as I do, you will notice a tremendous
commitment and incredible passion for anything they do. They truly love
helping the children -- something I share as well.
