Hands Across the Sea, Inc.
April 26, 2011

Hands Across the Sea made it possible for over 250 students are a primary school in a rural agricultural community to receive close to 3,000 books at no cost to the school. It was amazing how easy it was for use in country, just a little bit of coordination and the books were here.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The smiles on everyones faces, to see a community so excited about the books, especially kids that are excited about reading for the first time in their lives, its been amazing. Without Hands Across the Sea this would not have happened.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Maybe have two shipping dates, on in the fall and one in the spring as it seems they are starting to grow a lot, and that way local schools can collect books to be donated during the school year, where as now, that would be done of the summer.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I got together friends and family to donate/collect books. Once books arrived in St. lucia I organized and labeled them, and got a grant to build bookshleves, which are now being painted with fun designs by me. .
