The PeaceFund's Book Initiative began in Los Angeles in July 2016. Adrian Paul read to over 45 children all ages 5 to 7 at the Los Angeles Boys and Girls Club. It was an overall successful event. Children were engaged in literacy as Mr. Paul read and had the children act out one of the books titled, "Peter Pan." The children also received two books to take home where they can read them again and again. Overall, The PeaceFund's Interactive Storytelling Initiative was a hit!
The Peace Fund will take the program into schools, pre-school programs, child care facilities and other events to share the experience with other young children. Adrian or one of our Celebrity friends will lead the storytelling.
We would like to thank our friends Casey and Rene Nezhoda of "Storage Wars" for their support by donating 5,000 books for young children to the program.
