Support Fundación MIR in their last chance to collect books before school reopens! There is not much time left for you to donate books as the new school year is approaching promptly.
We are more than half way through the summer and it is time to start thinking about the new school year, that is why Fundación MIR urges you to donate as much books as possible for their library before the school year begins!
Any book you don’t really like anymore and that you think someone else might be able to use will be appreciated and included in the library. They also have a wishlist on Amazon of books that the Fundación MIR would like to include in our library so you don’t even have to give away your own books if you don’t want to!
Fundación MIR has no other purpose, but to help the children attending the school so please help us help them!
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.
To donate a book to the Fundación MIR, follow the following simple steps:
- CLICK HERE (this will take you to the Amazon.com website, where you will see the Fundación MIR’s ‘wish list’ of books.)
- Choose the book(s) you wish to donate – just click where it says “add to cart”
- Follow the steps and make your payment!
- The book(s) will then be sent straight to the Fundación MIR offices
Sponsor a shelf!
If anyone would like to “sponsor a shelf” in the Fundación MIR library the approx. cost for 50 books is $500. This donation is tax deductible and the Fundación MIR will place a plaque on the shelf with your name as the donor.
Do you have unwanted books gathering dust in your Casa de Campo villa?
Please send your unwanted books to the MIR Offices in Altos de Chavón – or call them and they will send someone to your Casa de Campo villa to pick them up. (Books in Spanish, age appropriate for grades K – 12 please!)
