Review for Bookends, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is what BookEnds does:
1. Show schools how to run a book drive to gather new and gently used children's books
2. Show the children who run the book drive how to sort the books according to age groups
3. Match the donor school with a recipient school
4. Co-ordinate with the schools, allowing the donor school to give the books to the recipient school, and interact with the recipients

This is what BookEnds really does:
1. Teaches children to be aware of the needs of others
2. Teaches children that they personally can help in the world
3. Provides reading materials for children in need

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

I would like to see BookEnds expand to be an international organization.
