I have great news about my fundraising effort to build a Room to Read school in Vietnam. I have raised $15,000. toward the school to date. That means I only $2,000 more before the school is fully funded. I will receive a report detailing the location of the school and the community it will serve in July. The school will be completed in Q1 2009. Isn't that awesome?
I have decided to dedicate the school in the memory of my mom who, as those of you who knew her remember, was quite an amazing lady. Part of the plaque will read....."to honor the memory of Florence MacFarlane Martin, who believed that through education lies the hope for a bright future for every child."
I need to sincerely thank those of you who supported or encouraged me with this project. Without your assistance, this school would not be. Thank you! If you would like to help me complete this project or help me with my next school in China, let me know. I welcome any and all support!
I would love to visit your local school this next year. Please look over my website, www.annmartinbowler.net to learn about my books and school programs. They are honestly lots of fun!
Again, I thank you for your support,
