#MLKDay: Doing Small Things in a Great Way
on: January 15, 2015
“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
Our small shipments are an excellent example of how something small can make a great impact. We may never fully know the effect a book has on a person, but the smiles on our partners’ faces give us a glimpse of a book’s true power.
Our small shipments are small because every book is hand selected by our staff and volunteers to fit the partner’s needs. A small shipment can be sent anywhere in the world with a valid postal address. So whether it’s going to “the house behind the big tree” or to a rural school in Mozambique, these books can travel anywhere and to any partner.
Child Impact International is one of many organizations that witnessed our small shipment’s impact first hand. Child Impact International desires to see all children, especially those from rural and impoverished areas of Ghana receive access to educational materials.
We recently received a letter of thanks for a small shipment from Child Impact International that we would like to share with you.
“We at Child Impact International are continually inspired by the dedication and generosity of donors like yourself who answer the call to give again and again. It is our hope that this simple letter will help to communicate our very big thanks for your generosity. Your support has played a key role in our success in reducing illiteracy in our nation. There is no way to fully express our gratitude for your loyalty.”
You can help us make a big impact by funding a small shipment. Each small shipment we send costs $200, which is a small price to pay to send a classroom set of textbooks, or help a rural school start their first library.
Together, we can do smalls things in a great way. Here’s how you can help.
