Wonderland Booksavers and their team managers meet with Mark Grashow (center)

Members of the Wonderland Booksavers and their sister team, Project I.C.E., met with Mark Grashow, founder and head of the US Africa Children’s Fellowship, yesterday.  Grashaw shared his story: a former math teacher, he became involved in providing school supplies and other important items to impoverished children in several African countries.  USAC has supported over 70,000 children in 165 schools in Zimbabwe, Tanzania, and Ghana.  Grashow’s inspirational presentation inspired us to do more to help USAC.  Books are important to help children get an education, but other things can be helpful too.  Based on Grashow’s advice, we are now planning to collect shoes so kids can walk to school, or toys which can be kept at schools to increase school attendance.

We sent Grashow away with a donation of 750 primary and secondary level books, which he will deliver to Africa himself.
