I am so excited to announce that we have raised $63 together for the Central Asia Institute so far! To put that number into perspective, it takes $1.00 to send a child to school for a month. It takes $20 to buy one student’s school supplies for a year.
Don’t know what I’m talking about? Click here to read about the fundraiser Thrilled by the Thought is doing for schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
I also want to share the creative idea my mother has for raising money the Central Asia Institute. Her book club is going to be reading Three Cups of Tea in February. She purchased a copy of the book and is now “renting” it out to the other women in the book club for $3.00. She will then donate that $3.00 to the Central Asia Insitute. So far, she has 3 women signed up! What a great idea! If you have a book club, you might consider reading this book and participating in a similar fund raising event! And if you do, I’d love to hear about it!
