One of EHell’s perennial charitable activities is to raise funds/donations for books to stock three libraries in the town of Chimaltenango, Guatemala. You can read more about our latest book drive in October 2016 HERE and how your donations of books change lives for years to come.
Etiquette Hell.com and EHellions have donated over 140 books since October 2016 and I thought you all would like to see a small example of the fruit of those donations.
This is the first, and I believe the only, Human Anatomy book in the entire town. Ehell sent 3 copies! Evelyn on the far left wants to be a doctor and the joy of having books that help her towards that goal is evident in her eyes.
In the video and photo below, the girls are reading fiction books donated in 2015. Consider that Guatemala has an illiteracy rate of 80%, scenes such as this are great to see!
UPDATE! YEA! We wiped out the Science Book Amazon Wish List completely! Thank you everyone! A large shipment of books is scheduled to be delivered this summer and we are SOOOO close to donating 100% of the science books on the Amazon Wish List. Just 3 left! We can do it! Wipe out that Wish List completely! We can’t change the whole world but we can certainly change a teeny, tiny spot.
You can view the wish list here: https://amzn.com/w/1LO4RMEDV4C5U
When you purchase the book(s), the check out steps should prompt you where to ship them with the option “Agua Viva Library Program’s Gift Registry Address”.
