There’s a global book famine afflicting people with disabilities. I have good news: For $5 million a year, we can build a global library that provides tens of millions of people around the world who are blind, low vision, or dyslexic free access to books that will work for them. Very few philanthropic opportunities come with the chance to solve a global problem with modest risk. Why is a global solution to the book famine possible now?

Just as our tools get more interesting and dynamic for global collaboration and impact, so do they for locally-focused work, campaigns, and communities.
