Audio Books for Children

I was randomly looking through audio books, and came across this video which I found very inspiring. In a way, it reminded me of Rukmini Banerjee's City of Stories. Four kids from Seattle, Washington got together in 2007 and recorded audio books and gave them away to children in four different schools. Laura D' Asaro is the founder of ABC (Audio Books for Children) Organization, a program that has recorded more than 1,000 books for children. She raised $5,000 at the Relay for Life event, which also earned her a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for the fastest time to crawl a mile. She has worked with the Forgotten Children’s Fund and has collected more than 2,000 pounds of candy that were used to fill the stockings for children during Christmas. 

Here is a video of how ABC Organisation started.
