Books to Guatemala!!!!

Thank you so much to Daphne and everyone who was able to support her getting these books to children and schools in Guatemala. Letter from Daphne below:

Hi everyone,

The Book Fair total sales came to $556! $426 worth of books were bought specifically for Guatemala (not personal orders). So, $426 + $278 (in FREE books) = $702 worth of quality Spanish books headed to Sharon in Guatemala. THANK YOU for those who participated in this Book Fair!!!

Beth M. mentioned a great idea for next time... where you buy a book specifically for your sponsored child/family, and between her and I, we would make sure it got to the right child. Then the free books earned would still go to a school. I think it's a great idea so I'll work with Beth and hopefully get a plan together in the next few months.

Meanwhile, $700+ worth of books will be in the Boston mini-shipment!

THANKS! Daphne
