MBL just received a reward from Larry and Carie Haimovitch Charitable Fund in honor of the late Toby Eady, who, sadly, passed away last December. Mr Eady was MBL’s board chairman for more than a decade, and had been instrumental in setting up MBL’s 23 international libraries in rural China.
Here is part of the reward letter, addressed to Xinran Eady, MBL’s founder.
Dear Ms. Xue:
It’s my pleasure to inform you that on September 10, 2018 an electronic deposit of $4,326 was made into your organization’s checking account to set up the Toby Eady Library for the MBL China Volunteer Centre at Nanjing City in honor of Toby Eady.
This grant is from the Larry and Carie Haimovitch Charitable Fund of the Marin Community Foundation (MCF) and was recommended by Larry and Carie Haimovitch. Any public listing of this contribution should read: Larry and Carie Haimovitch.
On behalf of all of us at MCF, thank you for everything that you do to improve the world in which we live.
Thank you for your generous support of MBL, Mr and Mrs Haimovitch! Nothing would have pleased Mr. Eady more than to know that a new library will be open for children in China.
Toby, we miss you!
