    Blessings Family!,
    I was reading an old Essence. I came across in their books section and it said "Give New Hope With Old Books"...want to share your new or used books?Contact Books for Africa..the nation's largest shipper of donated books to sub-Saharan Africa. You can call (651)-602-9844 or visit www.booksforafrica.org Sisters and brothers they especially need these types of books : Children’s or young adult’s hardcover storybooks in good condition , College textbooks in all subjects except american history/civics or foreign language, Science and Math books,Dictionaries.. you can find out about the other books at the site.
    Hope you guys donate ! *Cleaning out closets,taking out textbooks that college didnt take back or offered pennies for* :ilu: Africa !!
