Working with various nonprofits, organizations, churches and individuals, we gave away nearly 6,500 books over the last two months. And there still are over 3,500 books that are going to be handed out.
Perhaps the response to and impact of this initiative is best captured by this email from one of our partners. We would like to share it with you mainly because their gratitude (and ours) should rightfully extend to all of you for your continued generosity and support, without which none of this would have happened.
I hope you're doing well.
We are so encouraged by this, and other messages that we have received, that we are hoping to scale the project and are dreaming even of eventually giving away one million books! Join us in the pursuit of this dream (see it here: http://youtu.be/lcTnSi_bbVc).
In the meantime, we will continue to keep you posted in upcoming reports.
Again, our heartfelt thanks and warmest regards.
