Dear President Obama book launched

In 2009, we encouraged people to write a letter to US President Barack Obama about some very important issues, like hunger, climate change and child labour. The winning letters from this, our second writing competition, were collected together and published in a new book.

Obama Book

International response

The book, entitled “Dear President Obama”, features letters from across the globe: Niger, Liberia, America, Japan, Ireland and the UK.

Words of wisdom

We have reproduced the winning and shortlisted letters in full. Edited extracts from over 100 other entrants have also been included.

Yes we can

It is our hope that by presenting a copy of this book to the United States Ambassador to Ireland, Dan Rooney, it may eventually find its way into the hands and heart of President Barack Obama.
