Why? A dollar goes a long way to help abandoned, orphaned, and vulnerable children in eSwatini, Africa. And we know how important reading is to children everywhere. This is a great way to help children in the US develop a heart for helping children who haven’t been as fortunate as they’ve been, while spending some of their free time with good books.  Win-win!

Who can participate? Children age 1—those who completed their senior year in 2019. (Too young to read alone? A parent, grandparent, or older sibling may read to the child/children.)

How? Enroll on our website by June 14, 2019, or print the enrollment form and mail it.  List each sponsor’s name and contact info, plus the total amount pledged. Sponsors may pay online or give you a check to mail to GSM, PO Box 321, Buhler, KS  67522.

When?  Find sponsors now through June 14th. The goal is to find at least one sponsor who will pay $2.50 per day for ten days for a total of $25; additional sponsors are welcome!  Read ten days (June 15—24) for 30 minutes per day. The sponsor may pay online or give you a check to be mailed by June 30, 2019.
