#buyalib HAS gone to the ball.

Well, it took us a little longer than we’d hoped to sort out the logistics of getting money across various borders and currencies, and cobbling together one big gift out of our separate Paypal accounts, but now that is all done, and all of your donations in the hands of Good Gifts. And here is what you made:

A library for India! (pics to come when we get ’em)


100 extra books.

And a newspaper subscription.

Reading time at Christel House India
And an additional £520 to make the library extra-awesome.

(This isn’t your library — that isn’t built yet — but we hope it will make kids happy like this!)


FOUR bookmobiles in Africa.

Again, thank you more than words can say for your enthusiastic support of this project. We hope to be able to get pictures and reports about your libraries when they are up and running, and we’ll report about that here and on Twitter and the Facebook page.
