Julia and Emma Mogus are changing the world, one book at a time.
The teenage sisters from Oakville, Ont., are the founders of Books With No Bounds, a nonprofit organization that collects and distributes books throughout "fly-in" communities in Northern Ontario.
The Lighter Side spoke with Julia, 16, who talked of her childhood filled with books.
"[Books] are just a great way to open your mind. A gateway to a whole new world," she said.
When Julia and Emma learned that a book drive benefiting the 49 Nishnawbe Aski Nation communities had been cancelled, the sisters stepped up and started collecting books.

"We found stats such as most children will only get about one book their entire life," Julia said.
