Three Cups of Tea

I have just finished reading Three Cups of Tea. For some reason it took me a while to read it. Not because it wasn't interesting. Far from it. I think because the situations the people go through are sometimes too hard to bear.

More than ever, my plan for India in 2012 is still on and this book has inspired me to keep on track.

As suggested at the back of the book (if it inspired you to do more - how could it not!) here are suggestions for how to help:

1. Visit the Three Cups of Tea website.
2. Suggest Three Cups of Tea to friends, colleagues, etc.
3. Check if Three Cups of Tea is in your local library. If not, donate a book or suggest the library add it to their collection.
4. Encourage a local independent/chain bookstaore to carry this book.
5. Write a review for, etc.
6. As the book editor of your local newspaper or radio to review the book.
7. Pennies for Peace, is designed for school children. Donate your pennies!
8. Make a tax-deductible contribution to their non-profit organization. Visit It costs $1.00 per month for one child's education in Pakistan or Afghanistan, a penny to buy a pencil, and a teacher's salary averages $1.00 per day.
