Help support my friends and I to embark on a mission to that we can help the children in Uganda build their library.

I have always wanted a cause. A way to give. A way to help somewhere, someway, somehow. For many, many years I have dreamed of a mission. A trip to become enlightened, to serve, to help give back. My dream can now become a reality.

My school, Bessie Ellison Elementary, is in partnership with Wellspring Community Church and Rescued Readers. We are helping a village in Uganda with their newly built library. They need books. What a perfect fit for myself and my fellow educators! I am in need of support to travel with my fellow co-workers and friends. Each person must raise $3000.00 for our mission. There will be several installments due over the next several months. Please help.This is my dream, my cause. As a elementary librarian, I support literacy. Books give so much in supporting education, entertainment and can inspire our imaginations. What better cause could there be for me? This opportunity is at the right time for the right reasons!

The very essence of education is literacy. Yet every day teachers in Africa do their best to provide an education of children while their bookshelves remain empty. While we download books for free to wireless devices and throw our tattered copies away, the African child attempts to glean an education in an environment void of literature.

Join us as we embark on an adventure...a journey. A journey to bring the solitude of a story to villages in Africa. A journey to fill bookshelves and enrich minds. Partner with us as we make a commitment to love the whole child and take that child on his own journey..through the pages of a book.

Please give. Please help. Please make our mission happen.
