With the help of Better World Books, the Research Center will hold a “Rebuild Haiti” book drive from Tuesday, April 6th, 2010 through Tuesday, May 18th, 2010, to raise funds for Haiti’s education restoration effort. Funds raised through our book drive will go to the non-profit literacy partner, Plan USA, and will be applied exclusively to education in Haiti.
According to the Better World Books website, “Plan USA has been working in Haiti since 1973. They were recently selected by the Haitian government to implement the country’s education restoration effort alongside the Ministry of Education, UN agencies, local and international NGO partners.” You can learn more about Plan USA at www.planusa.org.
The donation drop box is located in front of the Research Center. There are no restrictions on the type, subject matter, or number of books that you donate, so please give! Spread the word, here’s the Facebook event page: “Rebuild Haiti” Book Drive
