GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - An Orono Middle School student's goal to share her love of books with children around the world recently became a reality.
A few years ago, Maria Keller created Read Indeed, a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting books and distributing them to children in need. Maria's goal was to collect 1,000,000 books and distribute them to children by the time she is 18.
Earlier this month, she reached that goal five years ahead of schedule.
Maria's next goal: to get books into every school in the world.
