Old books, just lying around the house, could help change a kid’s life in a way you’d never imagine. Kristina Cruise is the founder of "Promising Pages
," an organization that collects used books, turns them into presents and gives them to children who don’t have books of their own.
“I think we all assume as Americans that every child has a bookshelf full of books at home and in fact that’s not the case,” she says. “This is such an easy duplicable process. All you do is you take a book that a child has outgrown. You clean it, you wrap it up, you make it pretty and then you give it to a child who needs and wants to read it.”
