I just wanted to pass along an email I received from the former President of Muslims Student Action Network at Stanford. I know of one student who collects donated books to send to libraries in Africa. It is a worthy cause and hopefully more of us can do more to increase literacy in Africa.
I am starting up a collection of *Arabic literature/books/magazines /newspapers* to send to a brand new library in The *Gambia*, Africa. I have a friend in the Peace Corps who built this *library* and he has requested for these materials specifically. If you could just pass this message on to people you know, that would be great! They can personally contact me at *firstname.lastname@example.org* to get more involved. If you have any materials you would like to donate, please let me know and I will try and find a way to get them from you or to fund its shipment directly to The Gambia. Thanks so much, and I really hope you forward this message on to your friends and communities. Thanks!
