Extra! Extra! My Own Book to distribute 8000 books!

Friday, January 16, 2009.

My Own Book Founders Kyle & Brady BaldwinI first spoke with Kyle and Brady Baldwin in August of 2007. They were 16 and 14 respectively and the founders of the My Own Book Foundation, created to bring top quality books to the less fortunate.

It’s 2009, now. Kyle is 18 and a freshman in college, Brady is 16 and was at school when I called in response to an email they’d sent about the BestBuy @15 Challenge, which, in conjunction with GenV Youth Venture, was giving away money to youth changemakers.

As of today (January 16, 2009), My Own Book has distributed 17,311 books. Listen to this phone conversation find out how the @15 Challenge will help the foundation distribute another 8,000 books to people who need them.

I had never heard of this challenge, but I surely think it’s something I’m going to share with my eighth graders as an upcoming service effort- thanks for posting about this worthy cause….and KUDOS to the young men for their efforts.
