African Library Project

David Curtiss' Book Drive!

10/17/2012 to 03/05/2013
Los Angeles CA

We are working with the African Library Project to provide books to eager readers in Africa who have very few books. Please help us by collecting and delivering gently used books or by raising money to help pay for shipping to Africa. It takes only 1000 books and $500 (plus a little elbow grease!) to start a single library and make a huge difference in children’s lives.

This book drive is organized by ...

Hello everyone! My name is David Curtiss, I'm a junior in high school and a lover of all people all over the globe. I'm very interested in global development, and I love doing what I can to serve those who have less. I'm an avid book lover and I want to share that same joy and passion with others! Please support!

We want to start a library in Africa because...

So many of us are so blessed we take even the small things for granted. Like the joy of reading a book and letting your imagination and inspiration flow. That joy I always feel when I read a book....I want others who wouldn't have any other opportunity to know that joy too, and to know that they are loved when they receive these books.
