After completing 5 books (2 by me, 1 by my mom and 2 by Ro), $100 will be donated to the Valentino Achak Deng Foundation, which is currently asking for donations to build and run schools in Sudan. Here is their website http://www.valentinoachakdeng.org/. Valentino Achak Deng is the hero of my favorite book of the year What is the What.
A special thanks to Anne, Molly, Jess, Nolan, Grace, Rosanna and mom for coming to the event and helping raise the funds!! As you can see by the photo above, Nolan was the most avid reader of the group.
