Strengthen The Good

Using the power of weblogs for open-source charity. Don’t just fight evil: 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!

    Amazing story. I just wanted to let you know that I trackbacked to this entry, but I got an error “Your ping was denied for questionable content.” I don’t think there is anything in there that would be considered questionable so I figured you would want to know. :)
