JA book drive makes Guinness Book of Records!

Great news from Deika Morrison -  

The last time I communicated with the recipients of this email was the morning of May 1 2010.  Then I was announcing the official start of the Guinness World Record attempt.

The Rotary Clubs of Jamaica is now the official holder of the Guinness World Record for the Most Books Donated To Charity In Seven Days.  The record is now 657,061. 

All of you made this possible - in various ways.  We have thanked you in the press and now that it is official, I will write to each organization - more than 150 inside and outside of Jamaica who made this happen.  I just wanted you to know that the certificate arrived yesterday. 

Thank you so very much.  Jamaica has set another world record.  This time - a record for charity.  And we did so working together - public sector, private sector, NGOs, individuals, international partners.

Many, many thanks!
Best, Deika
