Thousands of SHARE volunteers in American have helped collect, sort, label, and box donated children’s books and school supplies for the SHARE libraries. As news of SHARE spreads, volunteers around the world have started book drives. Children in Rome, Italy have collected 300 books, and children in Dublin, Ireland, have started a school supply drive as well.
In March 2009 SHARE shipped 12,000 books to Tanzania with the help of two nonprofits, Books for Africa and COSAD. The books arrived in May 2009 and were distributed to the 3 schools.
