Bill Geyer introduced Wyatt Ship, a sophomore at Squalicum HS, who has a project donating books to a school in Africa called Books4Zimbabwe.  Wyatt talked about his community service and using the project to apply for a Congressional Service award. He knew he wanted to do a project in Africa. He met the head of a school there in Zimbabwe, and Wyatt asked him what he needs for his school:  He said soccer equipment and books.  In Zimbabwe, English is the national language, so American books work well.  It will be part of the school's first ever library.  He will do two shipments per year for four years.  He is soliciting book donations, some of which they keep for the Zimbabwe school (“just right books”), the the other books they sell for money to buy more “just right books”. So far, one shipment of 200lbs was sent.  Andy Clay and Bill Geyer took interest in this project may be soliciting a District Grant for raising some money.
