When I was in Uganda, this past January, I had the opportunity to visit the village of Zirobwe. It was an eye-opening experience for sure! The beautifully joyous people there lived in small, sturdy huts made of stick and mud. There was no electricity, so in various huts I saw a small solar panel or two sitting out in the sun. I took notice of this, but did not really think to ask what they were using them for.
After I had been home for a while, I stumbled upon Bright Books. I love journals and I need LOTS of them for the 100s of lists that I make, so I was intrigued and decided to read more about them. I learned that for each pair of journals purchased from Bright Books, a solar powered light would be donated to families who do not have access to electricity. This struck a serious chord with me and I knew I wanted to share the cause and mission of Bright Books with you all.
About 1.2 billion people in this world are lacking access to electricity. By purchasing a journal through Bright Books, you can help brighten the future for children around the world!
The Journals are hard cover books with 128 lined pages inside. They're perfect for carrying around in a backpack or tote because they won't get bent or ripped up.
