GOAL: $1000

In the center of the group of children (before the video is played) is Mal Keenen, founder of A to Z Literacy Movement.  Last year, LWS students and families raised over $600 for this organization that promotes literacy in the very poor country of Zambia.

Mal came and spoke with us near the end of the year, and the kids asked such good questions.  We learned that a year round teacher in Zambia makes $1000.  So this year it is our goal to collect change (and bills, or checks!) all next week to raise enough money to pay for a teacher.

Also, we'd like to collect new non-fiction and fiction books from the book fair for the schools served by A to Z.
