A Happy World Book Day for Bright Start

There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.~ Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

It's World Book Day and we are beyond happy to say that we have received new donations for our Give Book Give Love Year project.

We are deeply humbled and truly grateful with the continued support from Fr. Rickey and the parishioners of St. Joseph Church in Farmington, Missouri. Your generous donation would make it possible for us to accomplish our second goal which is to supply 430 dictionaries to the 1st and 2nd Grade classrooms of Lahug Elementary School, Cebu City. Distribution will be done when classes resume on June 2015. These dictionaries will benefit almost 2000 students. A big thank you to the Aseniero Family for facilitating.

Furthermore, another Bright Start Hero have been continuously sharing and making a difference. To Flora Ellis... to your family and friends, thank you very very much! Please know we truly appreciate your kindness.

"In celebration of World Book Day...here are a hundred books donated by the "Friends of the Tualatin Library" for Bright Start Cebu's "Give Books-Give Love" book drive for the children of Barangay Apas Day Care Center and Lahug Elementary Kindergarten in Cebu, Philippines. I am happy that I get to share my love for reading through this book drive and that these books from Tualatin will now have new readers in Cebu! More info at: www.brightstartcebu.com.
And for Portland-based readers, I will be glad to pick up your new or gently-used children's books so they can be shipped to Cebu. Please help grow our community of readers!"

Daghang Salamat. May our good Lord continue to shower you with blessings as you've always been a blessing to a lot of children.

To God be the Glory.
