Peace Corps Volunteers, Delia Najera (Education Volunteer) and Allison Adams (Health Volunteer), invite you to be part of the Peace Corps experience and support the students and youth of Arsi Robe by donation of paper love, also known as books. Check out the cause – Books for Arsi Robe
“BUT WHY DONATE?”, YOU ASK!
We can give you 10 enthusiastic reasons:
10. Ethiopia’s literacy rate is currently only 40%. Donating will help increase the national reading level (one step at a time).
9. These kids actually WANT to read. They would rather sit down with a book than sit down with an Xbox (which they don’t have anyways, but I still stand by my point) and for that they should be rewarded.
8. GOOD KARMA! What goes around comes around… who doesn’t like good stuff happening?!
7. The Harry Potter series has ended, which means there’s a market out there for brilliant new minds to be released. Why not inspire one to get an early start?
6. You’re not losing anything. You’re INVESTING something. Skip your $9 morning latte and send knowledge through books across the world with FREE SHIPPING (nothing is better than free shipping!).
5. THESE FACES! If you love me, then you are automatically obligated to love them too.
4. “Avid reading over the course of a lifetime may reduce the rate of memory decline by 32%”… meaning sending a few books may increase your chances of your legacy living on in this world through these children’s brilliant minds (and by “may” I mean “will”).
3. Even social media loves donating books – join the Books for Arsi Robe page on Facebook. 1 like = instant karma (possibly, karma is not guaranteed) or share
2. Donating creates opportunities for Arsi Robe students and youth to expand their minds. These kids are already amazing but deserve the chance to be ever more excellent.
1. Donating is an easy 5 step process that you can do while on your lunch break, during those sleepless nights, or while pretending to work.
