It is not enough to simply teach children to read. We have to give them something worth reading, something that will stretch their imagination, something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out.

Harvest House has, for many years, donated books as a gift to the children of Destin-based Mission Love Seeds in the Philippines. If you have books to donate to MLS, they can be dropped off at The Lisa Snuggs Real Estate Group, 225 Main St #15 or 55 Country Club Drive in Destin.

If you prefer, you can send a cash donation to MLS at the Country Club Drive address or donate online at missionloveseeds.org. Donations are always needed for shipping and purchasing items in the Philippines.
