Books With No Bounds… Teen Sisters on a Mission

InspireMyKids is so impressed with two teenage sisters Emma and Julia Mogus who founded an organization called “Books With No Bounds”.  They provide Aboriginal children and teens living in remote communities books donated by publishers, authors, schools, individuals and organizations.  They believe that every child deserves the opportunity to read and have access to a wide variety of books.  To date the sisters have donated over 33,000 brand new or like new books.  Wow that is truly impressive!

The passion and commitment that these two young ladies have shown is just incredible.  They have chartered boats and planes and worked tirelessly after school and on the weekends to make a difference in these children’s lives.  Check out their video here:
