My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Hands Across the Sea, Inc., Boston, MA, USA
On behalf of Kids Unlimited School in Antigua, I cannot say enough wonderful things about Hands Across the Sea. They have been instrumental in us creating and maintaining an excellent library that our students love. My heart broke one day when I noticed a student smelling a book to decide if she wanted to check it out. With the amazing new books provided by Hands Across the Sea, we were able to get rid of the old, outdated, musty books. Now our library is stocked with current, interesting and relevant books that the students love.
As a librarian, I love to sit back and listen to the students' conversations during library time. They discuss the latest Geronimo Stilton book they read and the next Diary of a Wimpy Kid book they want to read. They look through the beautiful picture books and exclaim "look how cool this is!" to their peers. Others sit and read quietly, lost in the world of a book.
This organization doesn't just talk the talk, they walk the walk - the on-island, hands-on support is outstanding. On behalf of the students, principal, staff and myself (as volunteer librarian), I'd like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to the staff and donors of Hands Across the Sea. With your support and generosity we now have a "cool" library that the students are proud of!
