The Jack Mason Law & Democracy Initiative of Books For Africa recently was featured in “Share A Dream: A Summary of Sharing 2010,” a document that summarizes the incredible charitable work performed last year by the law firm Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi (RKMC). RKMC provides the most financial support of any of our supportive law firms to the Jack Mason Law & Democracy Initiative. They have been our top donor since the program was created three years ago.

Lane Ayres, Director of BFA's Jack Mason Law & Democracy Initiative, and Lisa Heller, Managing Partner of RKMC's Atlanta office, at the June 2010 reception welcoming BFA to the Atlanta area.

In June of 2010 the RKMC Atlanta office hosted a welcome reception at the City Club of Buckhead to celebrate the opening of Books For Africa’s second warehouse/office in the Atlanta area. At the reception, Lisa Heller, managing partner for the firm's Atlanta office, said: “We are delighted to welcome and introduce Books For Africa to the greater Atlanta community. Our firm has supported BFA in Minnesota for many years, and we are committed to continue helping this life-changing organization here locally.”

RKMC has held two book drives at their Minneapolis office and one at their Atlanta office. Additionally their Atlanta office staff also volunteered at the warehouse this year. Thank you, RKMC!
