Fundacion Mir“A man may as well expect to grow stronger by always eating as wiser by always reading,” said Jeremy Collier once.We all know books are like food to the mind and soul, they are perhaps one of the most powerful and useful tools provided to us, if not the most. One simple book has the power of unlatching a child’s imagination, letting his creativity and abilities run wild and develop. It is for that reason that Fundación MIR has prepared a drive that beseeches from its donors the greatest gift you can give a child – books!

This initiative was begun by Dino La Capra, who has passionately supported MIR and their work with La Romana’s education for several years and who we congratulate for this great idea that has in the past been a great success.

Today Casa de Campo Living is proud to sponsor this initiative to help gather plenty of books for the boys and girls of the Fundación MIR to start the new school year in August fully prepared.
