Good reads, good causes



Kayak Anna and the Palindrome Creek: A splashing eco-adventure for readers ages 9-13

This was book was recommended to me by a friend of a friend of the author.

The initiative was spurred by the author's time observing first hand the perils of the lack of clean water.

Sales of this book help provide clean, safe drinking water for children around the world.

Hear new music, learn more palindromes, find out how to start a clean stream project of your own at Kayakanna.org.

And while you are reading for fun and for a good cause, please visit Better World Books where you can get a great deal on books while funding literacy around the world and reduce your carbon footprint -- all at the same time. 


These entrepreneurs were recently celebrated at "Responsibility Pioneers" by Time magazine.  Better World Books was started by University of Notre Dame students and they opened their first retail store in Goshen, hometown of Goshen College.

It's a logical fit.

Both Notre Dame (Catholic) and Goshen College (Mennonite) share a strong common bond in peace, social justice, and international affairs. 85% of Goshen College graduates study internationally, making it sixth in among all colleges and universities in that category.
