I just received this wonderful news from my friends at Room To Read. I'm sure you'll agree with me that this is a great step forward in helping to educate children in India and the world over.
Dear Friends of Room to Read,
We are incredibly excited to announce that John Wood, our Founder and CEO, will be a guest on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" scheduled to air on Tuesday, April 3rd. The episode will feature individuals who are truly making a difference in the world. This is an amazing opportunity for us to reach a wide audience and share John's story and the mission of Room to Read. But wait, the news gets even better... She will be issuing a challenge to her audience to support our work through a book drive through Oprah.com, which will raise funds for new local language books and libraries!
We would love for you to help get the word out, so please consider:
1. Hosting a viewing party so more of your friends can learn about Room to Read!
2. Getting a few copies of John's book, Leaving Microsoft to Change the World, into the hands of your friends who might want to support Room to Read's work. The book also will be featured on the show.
Thank you again for all of your continued support as we reach new heights! This is a momentous occasion for Room to Read and we hope you will tune in on Tuesday, April 3rd (check local listings for program information)! If the show and the book drive are a big success, it could mean the opportunity to bring the lifelong gift of education to hundreds of thousands of children across the developing world.
The Room to Read Team
So please join us in not only watching the show, but also in taking part in Oprah's challenge! Thank you in advance!
