Meet a STAR RAR volunteer – Abdullah
(http://www NULL.rarbayarea NULL.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/Abdullah NULL.png)
When did you first learn about RAR?
I learned about RAR while volunteering in the Book Sorting Event in Caltrans Oakland Office Basement on August 28, 2011.
Why do you think RAR is important?
It’s all of our moral duty to make the best use of our lives and work towards a better future.
Colors in my dreams from the pages of my childhood books. Dreams of a life where there is compassion, care, love, justice and no hunger. My dreams have been shattered. Everyday, I wake up to the reality of life…hunger, injustice, greed, war, drought, global warming, recession. What are we leaving for our future generation?
I hope, one day my dream will come true with your help. I am waiting to celebrate that day with thousands of RAR raised readers. I want to tell them the colors in their story books have come true. Please join us with RAR to raise those future readers and a better future.
This message is approved by Abdullah Mahmud, Caltrans-District 4, 2011 CSECC Chair, who has joined RAR volunteering effort to raise thousands of readers in the Bay Area.
Do you have young children? (If yes, what is your reading routine? Do you have a favorite children’s book?)
I do not have children. So I do not get to read children’s books.
