Here’s what the folks at Food4Thought Foundation are saying about their cause:
Food4Thought Foundation was established in 2015 with a firm belief of ‘Connecting Idle Books to Hungry Minds’, and fulfilling every book lover’s wish and request – just one more page please?We focus on the three major sectors of education, children and arts & publishing. The focus areas range from circulating idle books to building libraries (education), to encouraging reading habits (children) and to saving endangered stories (arts & publishing).
We invite you to be a BOND and ‘Breathe Oxygen iNto Decommissioned books and endangered stories’. One of the greatest tragedy of this century, which remains undiscussed, is that we believe that books are meant to be read once, then stored and forgotten. They are treated no more than ornamental pieces that are possessed just for pride. Books are in fact meant to travel, feed millions of hungry minds, bring joy to a million hearts and lighten up a million souls. Let’s breathe life into those idle books and preserve stories that are lost with each passing generation.
Our system enables every book donor to track their books and see which part of the country their book is in. With this, we hope that we can revive book reading, and help set up more libraries in schools that do not have access to these resources.
