Book drive Osaka


This is an idea I got after seeing some pictures from a high school classmate. She is currently teaching in an elementary school back in my hometown in Ozamiz City , Philippines.

They got some book donations from their benefactor from Canada, and when the kids open the boxes, the excitement and happiness in their eyes are just memorable.

Public libraries or even a small library in schools are not available. I remember before that I have to ask my rich classmate if they would let me borrow their books, I was just lucky though my mother loves books and she has some collections from her college days and my classmates where nice enough to let me borrow their books too. They know that their books are much more safer with me than with them :).

Looking at those kids smile, when holding the books is priceless.  I want to be make them smile more, so I am slowly collecting books ( English) by checking out flea markets, sayonara sale here in Osaka. In my next vacation, I think I will go through my remaining book collection and just donate it to those kids who wants to read it.

A friend also decided to join this idea of mine, hopefully between the two of us, we can collect as much books as we can. Crossing our fingers 🙂

I will posting updates as I go along this project.

  1. Oh I would love to donate some books! I have many children’s books from my childhood and I always try to give them to children in other countries since they appreciate them much more. If there’s a place to send them count me in!

      Oh thank you for your interest. I will contact my former classmate and get their mailing address. I know the kids will love them.

Any thoughts?
