African Library Project

Third World Love Club Book Drive

03/02/2014 to 05/02/2014
Santa Ana 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 ...

Third World Love club is a club at Mater Dei high school that is dedicated to helping children, families, schools, and orphanages in third world countries get items such as toys, sports equipment, books, and everyday necessities.

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

Because we are dedicated to helping those less fortunate. We are working to spread awareness and help share our compassion with others. Our community is very fortunate to have the gift of education and we are very excited to help share our blessings.

Please contribute these kinds of books...
