CNN Hero of the Week...Yohannes Gebregeorgis.

This is Yohannes Gebregeorgis. He will be featured tonight, and this week on CNN. You can read about him here. If you have a chance, watch the videos, especially the Four-Legged Library video. Ethiopia Reads is a fantastic organization. Their link is in my side bar if you want more info.

Also, click here to see what one of my favorite families has done to contribute. Very inspirational. Is their daughter not the cutest Chilly Ethiopian you have ever seen? They also have more info about Yohannes in their most recent posting.


  1. Hey JC, one of your favorite families inspired ME to do a book drive at my HS and I have collected a ton of books to send to the above mentioned family - who will add this to their efforts. How beautiful IS community? OH yeah, and my students LOVED looking for their favorite books, especially "Captain Underpants." I got the benefit of community building in so many places.

  2. I haven't gotten the book yet, thanks for the reminder!

  3. Thank you for the plug! We are so grateful to have so many friends in the adoptive community. Great site! -- Laura Bond, Ethiopia Reads
