Under Construction

For those who have visited Strengthen The Good before, it should be obvious that we’ve got a new look. I plan to re-launch the site in the future, but in the meantime, please understand that things ’round here are a work in progress. I’d welcome any feedback.

Update From Bratislava

The books keep coming in Bratislava. Douglas has been kind enough to forward some photos — one which I’ve posted below and the others of which I’ve posted in the extended entry — so you may see some of the good you’ve strengthened (I particularly like the shot of the Slovakian student reading Ayn Rand).

Over 550 books now and counting. Thanks for helping to strengthen the good.

Another Bratislava Update

It’s been several months since I’ve profiled a microcharity, but the support for the Petrzalka library kept coming in, so I kept the profile up as long as I could. I am about to move on to our next microcharity, but before I do, I wanted to pass along this note from Douglas in Bratislava:

The library continues to grow nicely. We have received more than 400 books. You can always check out the bookshelf at bookcrossings to see what those good people have done, to the tune of 146 books.

More than 400 English-language books now sitting as a new library in the Soviet-era apartment block of Petrzalka. What’s more, we received over $750 in donations, which when combined with what’s been sent, should result in a library with over 1,000 volumes.

I’ve asked Douglas to send some photos, which I’ll post when they arrive. In the interim, thanks for helping to strengthen the good!
