Voluntourism: Book Sharing Project 2012

Imagine your life without books... For some, it's a sad reality.

This backpacker mum is stoked to be part of an awesome team that will help bring an early Christmas to Rizal Elementary School in Gubat, Sorsogon this year. The Book Sharing Project, organized by local volunteers and a bunch of bloggers, aims to collect donated books that will be handed over to a school that's been around for almost fifty years but never had a library.

Fifty years! Tsk. Watch this video prepared by fellow travel blogger Journeying James to know more about the project.

We have done our small part, now we just need YOU to help us make a difference...

After the library is filled with books, please put a fire extinguisher.

Educational books preferably. But novels, magazines (wholesome ones at least) are welcome too. The library will also serve the community, not just the students :)

It's great that travel bloggers are using their blogs to help serve the community! Kudos to you and the organizers!

Would love to join the trip to Sorsogon! I've never been to that place yet and I'm sure this event will be a memorable one kaya dun na lang ako mismo sa event sasama!
