“Literacy is at the heart of sustainable development.” — Kofi Annan
This year we will:
Provide school lunches for approximately 160 pupils for six months- $1890
Entirely fund the yearly salary of two Zambian teachers - $3500
Ship over 3000 books to classrooms, libraries, and children's camps in Zambia. Cost
to ship a box of books = $4995
Remodel and replenish small library for after school program in northern Illinois
Daily, A to Z Literacy Movement and its partners provide education and support to
over 100 Zambian children. Your tax deductible contribution will improve these children’s
lives. Will you help?
8,677 pounds. That’s close to 4 ½ tons.That is the weight of the goods that you,
as a community McHenry County, donated to our A to Z Literacy/Savers fundraiser.
We figure this is a win, win, win, win situation.
Win #1: Nearest and dearest to our heart are the capital funds A to Z Literacy acquired
because of your generosity. The books will continue to be sent from America to Zambia,
the Zambian children will eat lunch at school and 2 teachers will be paid by us.
Win #2: We feel good that we gave you incentive to clean out some unwanted belongings
from your homes. New, reclaimed space is a good thing!
Win #3: By offering your items to Savers, you kept them out of the landfill; Mother
Earth is the beneficiary and she thanks you.
Win #4: At the end of this chain, when Savers sells merchandise, a portion of the
proceeds go to the Epilepsy Foundation. The result is people helping people.
A to Z Literacy Movement is gratified by your giving hearts and helping hands. It
is due to your charitable nature that we are able to work toward our objectives.
