Room to Readwww.roomtoread.orgThey help build schools and libraries for girls in Asia and Africa. We had no contact person - the organization web site has a facility for creating your own fundraising page, which we did. Ronni’s project was that she recorded some “audiobooks” with her friends — stories from the public domain that they read aloud and uploaded to a web site where people could download them to listen with their kids. If they liked them or were so moved, they could make a contribution to Room to Read.Ronni Lewis; Mom, Debi Lewis - debi@jebraweb.com
