Please help me to raise money for The Afghan Reading Project. It won't cost you anything. If you go to Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com through a link on this site (like the one above) Amazon pay a commission on anything you buy. All money raised will go to The Afghan Reading Project . So why not bookmark this page and call it 'Amazon' - then you won't forget. Thank you.
