Teresa Lindsay collects 35,000 books for Trivani sponsored schools!

Teresa Lindsay, a Trivani Distributor from Orem Utah, has collected almost 35,000 books to equip libraries at Trivani sponsored schools! Here’s her account of how she did it:

I was first introduced to Trivani in October of this year. I was in awe and amazed that such a company existed. I signed up immediately without hesitation. The ability to change a child’s life empowered me. I wanted to step outside of the box and do more. I put a phone call into Megan, Trivani’s Foundation executive director to see what I could do to help her.

She had mentioned that she was in need of books for the children and villages. I immediately stepped into action. I made several attempts to collect books but had little success. My philosophy is “Failure is not an option” so after contacting Megan for more insight, she suggested that I contact local libraries for books. I went right to work. I did collect several boxes but felt this was not enough. I then started connecting with other local librarians in the area and asked about other foundations that might be collecting books for the same purpose. Through my contacts with other foundations I was led eventually to the World Wide Book Organization. Upon building a re-pore with Jake the Foundation President he agreed to give us 21 pallets of books. I then proceeded to ask him exactly how many books that was and was astonished to learn that it was between 30,000 to 35,000 books.

Don’t ever give up (especially for the children) because what your mind believes you will achieve. Set a goal or a promise to yourself and go to work. I have since become a double guardian because I have a passion for these children as I hope all of you do as well.

-Teresa Lindsay, Trivani Distributor

On behalf of Trivani Foundation, thank you Teresa for your work and dedication!

UPDATE: I just got off the phone with Teresa’s mother-in-law, Sue Ann Lindsay, who has gotten involved and is helping to coordinate the sorting of the books. It will happen later in February with the help of some local Eagle Scout candidates, their troops, and members of the public. Stay tuned for more about their volunteer efforts and information on how any folks along the Wasatch Front can help as well.
