When we invited people from around the world to share in the spirit of giving, we didn't know what kind of response we would get. To our surprise, over 5,000 people participated in the book campaign by helping us choose a special book for students at a school in Northern Thailand.
Two weeks after we posted this first video, the response has been amazing. Thanks to all who participated and voted for their favorite book. On October 31st, we tabulated the votes and can now announce that we will be delivering Dr. Seuss's "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" to the children of Morwakee. Check back with us at http://bookvote.asiafoundation.org on November 2, and we'll post a follow-up video on the delivery, and new developments at the school.
Over the next few months we will be featuring two more schools, so don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel, or become a fan of The Asia Foundation on Facebook. That way you can stay up to date on future opportunities to help Books for Asia and The Asia Foundation inspire a lifetime of learning through the power of books.
