Pennies for Poetry -- Bucks for Books: Join Ethiopia Reads

This note just came in from my friend Jane Kurtz and I wanted to ask all of my readers to consider contributing to the initiative to literally help build literacy in Ethiopia.
Pennies promise poetry.
Dollars deliver dreams.
A buck can buy a book and books change lives.

Instead of asking "a penny for your thoughts,we're asking you to put
your two cents in by donating a dollar to Ethiopia Reads during the month
of May help in celebration of our fourth anniversary.

Ethiopia Reads was founded in May 2003 by Yohannes Gebregiorgis after he
realized how much even one book changed his life. Our mission is to
develop a reading culture in Ethiopia by connecting children with books.

Be a part of our efforts to put books into the hands of every Ethiopian
child by participating in our give a buck campaign. That same dollar may
not travel far here but just imagine all the stories it can tell in

Thank you. "Amesegenallo."
