The online initiative Call for Books enables to donate knowledge instead of money. Local volunteers around the world collect book wishes by children whose families do not have the financial means to support their education. Together with a picture and a short description the wishes are uploaded to the website where they can be viewed and answered by volunteers. Through a simple online form they announce their donation, upload a picture and a personal letter for the child they want to support. So far, more than 130 books have been shipped to kids all over the globe this way.
