FORMULA ONE LIFE INC
June 27, 2011

This is such a wonderful cause. Infant formula being brought to third world countries by flight attendants that use their own time and benefits to feed starving babies. More needs to be done. Please help by making a donation. They cannot do it themselves, however, with your help they can feed the starving infants of the world. I am proud to say I know this group and support them 100%

Just 1 Book
June 27, 2011

Just 1 Book was started by my daughter Sarah when she was 10 years old. Sarah loves to read. After learning about an area in need, that is not too far from where we live, she thought that if a parent was struggling with everyday bills they could not afford to buy books for their children. So Sarah wrote a proposal to her Principal that if every child in her school donated Just 1 Book it would be one book for them but 763 when put together. In our first year Just 1 Book has collected over 60,000 books to help children in need. We are growing everyday. As Sarah says it's about "putting a book in a child's hand and a smile on their face". Sarah could not imagine her life without books and wants every child to have one also. This is a great cause with dedicated volunteers. We plan on touching as many children we can. I dedicate my time to Just 1 Book not only for my daughter, but for all the children we are able to bring books to. Please consider joining us and give the gift of literacy.
