We are excited to raise money with our friends at this happy hour, here is some background info:

Crossroads Springs Institute, founded in 2003, is an orphan care center and school geared towards children whose parents have died of AIDS. The institution provides food, clothing, education and loving care to children and adolescents. Forty children attended the school during the first year and now more than 250 children attend the Crossroads Springs Institute.

The mission of Bounding Books is to furnish the Crossroads Springs Institute and community with a library that will house a rich variety of books for the students. The donations of books, goods/services, monetary funds, and any other resources will greatly enhance the education of students and build a bridge of friendship between the United States and Kenya. Many of these students will never leave Kenya or their villages but Boundless Books will allow them with an opportunity to travel anywhere in their world with the use of their imagination while reading books donated by the community. Boundless Books is something special because Maureen believes that every child should fall in love with reading. What is a better gift to leave behind to a friend or someone you care about than the love of reading or your favorite book?

Come out and Support!
