Books for the World in Isthmus



It brings me joy when I hear about charitable organizations whose mission is two-fold. Books for the World not only helps the environment by keeping large quantities of books and educational materials out of the landfill, but they turn around and give those materials a whole new life in Third World countries. What a win-win!!


The above photo is of a group of school girls in Afghanistan, taken in 2012. They had just received a shipment of books that arrived from Truax field via the Books for the World program here in Wisconsin.

Carol and Bob Dombroski, who lead the program, are two very amazing people that are incredibly dedicated to this cause. It was truly a pleasure to speak with them. Read more about Books for the World in my recent Isthmus article.
