One of the things that has been so inspiring about my work and connection with A to Z Literacy, is realizing the power we have to make a difference. Sharing my photos, stories, and the book I wrote with the students at Shine Zambia, with the friends in the book club I belong to here in Crystal Lake, motivated all of us in the club to help pay for a teacher at Shine for one year. My friends in book club and my sorority sisters have been so generous and supportive. I know if other book clubs wanted to do something directly related to the reason we all get together…to share literacy and our love of reading…then donating to A to Z Literacy is a perfect way to support literacy in Africa and also here in McHenry County. We can all make a difference!
