The Asia Foundation: How Your Vote Made a Difference

Thank you to Wendy Rockett at The Asia Foundation for this exciting update to their recent Choose a Book, Change a Life campaign:

And the winner is… The Tale of Peter Rabbit!

Once the last vote was cast, Books for Asia returned to Mongolia to give every student in the fourth grade class of Khishig-Undur School a copy of The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter. Watch this video for the students’ “thank you” to YOU for making this happen.

We’d like to thank each and every one of you for your participation. An impressive 10,000 people voted to send a book to a child in need, which means you helped The Asia Foundation raise $10,000! This was made possible by the benevolence of our anonymous donor who pledged $1 for every vote cast. We’d also like to thank We Give Books for their generous donation of the winning book.

To learn more about our Books for Asia programs and how you can continue to help, visit our website or contact Wendy Rockett at wrockett@asiafound.org or (510) 667-6475, ext. 204. You can also support our work by making a donation .
