Do you have books to donate?

Image taken from www.mybooks24-7.com

A-Book-Saya Group (ABSG), a non-government group dedicated to the task of uplifting the literacy of poor kids in Mindanao is looking for donors of books, new and used.

Couple Armand and Annora Nocum, a Christian and a Muslim respectively, opened the Kristiyano-Islam (Kris) Peace Library-Quezon City which is actually a portion of their house in Barangay Holy Spirit converted as a library.

Thousands of children from their community and nearby places have benefited in this good deed initiated by this couple who has also received donations not only in the Philippines but from foreigners who came to know about their mini library.

Actually, the library in Quezon City is the second book hub they built after the successful project they launched in Mindanao

For more than three years, the two-story Kris Library in Zamboanga has been giving thousands of poor Christian and Muslim kids free use of books and research materials, free basic computer lessons, free use of computers. It also has some 100 scholars. ABSG has likewise given some 6,000 books and magazines to poor kids since 2001.

If you'll have nothing to do this weekend, why not do a general cleaning and you might find some books that have been dust holders for years in your place. Just a little cleaning, these reasding materials will educate minds who would be the future of our country.

Donors may bring their stuff at the Kris Peace Library at No. 9, Doña Isidora Street, Don Antonio Heights, Diliman, Quezon City or at Dean & Kings Legal PR and Communications Marketing firm located at Suite 300, Kimvi Realty & Dev’t Bldg., 1191 Maria Orosa St., Ermita, Manila 100.
