Books For Messah (Taman Bacaan Pelangi)
09 Sep 2014
Indonesia is comprised of over 17,000 beautiful islands. This month, the kids on one of those islands, Messah, in Komodo National Park, needs your help! The kids on Messah are thirsty for books and other education materials, and we need your help to quench that thirst. Books for Messah is unique in that the journey doesnt stop with the donation. We are calling on everyone involved to find a way to make it out to Messah to meet the kids and find out what it means to donate to a Taman Bacaan Pelangi library.
After you rally your friends and family to donate, we'll be looking for you to come along as we pack more than 4,500 books, maps, colored pencils and education materials and head off to meet the kids. Have you ever seen 4,500 children's books before? This is going to be amazing!
Rencana Penggunaan Dana
The money we raise over the next 30 days is going directly to the kids of Messah. We want to raise Rp 60 million for children's books, maps, colored pencils and other reading and education materials.
Why Rp 60 million? Because with Rp 60 million we can keep the library on Messah full of new books and actitivites throughout the year. We can paint murals, have coloring contests, reading contests, you name it. That's why this campaign is so cool, because it is what you make it.
The hope is that as soon as we hit the target, we can drop off books and materials. And you can help. We want you to come out and meet the kids of Messah. Ayo, come on!
