Hi Paula!
I hope you are doing great!
Thanks for posting about our project!

I’m reaching out to you because I noticed that you mentioned Tsehai Loves Learning on your blog—which I very much appreciate, so thank you!—and we have an exciting new project that we’re hoping you can share with your readers.

In collaboration with Higher Circle, a platform which funds socially meaningful projects of innovative developing market entrepreneurs, we are running a campaign called Opening Books to Open Doors. The project’s goal is to provide 2 beautifully illustrated, Amharic-language books to 230 schoolchildren who attend Hamle 1 and Fresh and Green Academy, two low-income schools in Addis Ababa. The storybooks contain the lovable characters from the Tsehai Loves Learning TV shows, who tell tales of friendship, altruism, kindess, courage, and integrity. For many of the children, these storybooks will be their first, and when we recently visited the children to whom these books will go, they were so excited about receiving the books!

Would you be open to spreading the word about our campaign on your blog, and other outlets like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Google+? We’d very much appreciate it if you and those in your various circles help us meet our funding goal of $1,150 so that we can continue to spark, cultivate, and nourish a child’s imagination. You can also connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Google+.

I thank you in advance, and I hope you’ll join us!

Warmest regards,

Brukty Tigabu
