Our Dragonfly Ambassadors are like the animal it gives them their name: they have the ability to fly around the world in a unique manner; they can be unnoticed at times; but when looked closely, they add great value and beauty to this earth through their actions.
The Dragonfly Ambassadors are friends of our project. They are volunteers who transport small numbers of books and they help us deliver them to random children with no resources in remote corners of the planet where they regularly work. To become an Ambassador, please contact us.
Gold Dragonfly Ambassadors (coming soon) are volunteers who are committed not only to delivering the books but to personally buying a minimum of three books per year to give away in their voyages.
