I collect books. In fact, I spend more on books than on anything else. And so I’m interested in people who work with books. Especially books for Africa.
Enter Books4Cause: an organization that collects books from the States to distribute in Africa and similar regions. It is crush-worthy.
Except we learn: Older books that are a few years out of date are perfect for Africa. Newer books are often sold to raise money and cover the cost of shipping and running the book drive.
Poor Africans. Not quite now.
Do folks who write these things know that we have internet in Africa? And that we actually read what they write?
I’m too exhausted by this shit to be pissed.
