I was just invited to join this Facebook group “Books For Fiji” and of course, I love that it was put together by a 16 year old volunteer!!! Way to go Morgan!!! Let’s Get Ready to Build this library in Fiji! Here is Morgan’s mission:
My name is Morgan Hayton I am 16 years old.
I have spent my winter school holidays for two years in Fiji volunteering at local school as part of my school’s mission team. We visited at very remote school that is struggling and has only handful books in the whole school, the teachers there can only dream of starting a library.
Have you ever wanted to change the world? But think it is impossible because we are just one person? Me too! But then I came up with this idea.
We are going to build a library together! One person, one book at a time.
One person can’t build a library but if everyone that gets into this group gets a book from their bookshelf (they don’t have to be new) and post it to Fiji we can do it together.
We can build a library together.
A small book no more 2cm thick up to 125g ( that’s like a Dr Seuss soft cover) in an A4 envelope costs $2.80 to post.Up to 250g is $4.20
There is no sea mail to Fiji so this is the best way to get books there.

Please write your a small bit about yourself or family inside the cover the kids would love to know who you are and where to book came from.
Look at my page from time to time and I will get some photos next year and you can see your library.
A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.
