I need old school books
« on: September 30, 2009, 11:57:01 AM »
Hey guys.  Does anyone have any old text books laying around?  I will come to you and pick them up.  My wife is gathering them and we will pack them up, project enlighten pays for the shipping.  Please see the email below.  Thanks for reading.  PM me or post up if you can help.
  Hello everyone,   I don't like to send out mass emails, but I need your help gathering learning books - all levels and ages.  I was fortunate to learn about Project Enlighten, founded by a group of firefighters here in the U.S. Their purpose is to provide educational and humanitarian assistance to international communities.  The founder is making another trip to Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Burma this coming November.  Books are much needed in those countries.  I will ship them to Project Enlighten and they will be delivered to different schools in various countries.  Please take a look at your kids' book shelves, if you don't have kids, please check with your relatives, friends & neighbors. Thank you for lending a helping hand in establishing opportunities for children from all over the world to succeed.  Again, all learning books are much needed, old or new, for all learning levels and age groups.  Your kindness is greatly appreciated.  Y'all have a wonderful day.   P.S. If you'd like to learn more about Project Enlighten, please visit www.projectenlighten.org

don't worry TTT, yours were below the level of little asian kids, they would have spent all class laughing at "stupid americans".  Thanks for looking though.

I might have some of my ex's anthropology and spanish textbooks around somewhere and maybe a few more general courses if I can remember which box they got put in. The only textbooks of mine that I've kept were my math and programming ones and you can't have them because my math/code is getting super-rusty and I might need to brush up at some point in the future.
