We have fantastic news from our World Book Day team, all thanks to the many, many thousands of you who dressed up, baked, held book sales, had a non-uniform day or did other amazing fundraising for Book Aid International for World Book Day. In fact we already know that more of you than ever before joined in and supported our work, sharing your love of books with incredible generosity.
In just over a month since World Book Day, you have sent us a record-breaking, jaw-dropping £106,200.14! That’s more than any World Book Day EVER, and many of you have yet to send in your donations or you are still doing your fundraising!
The donations we have received so far are enough for us to develop 10 Children’s Corners to inspire and empower children in under-resourced communities in Africa, or it’s enough to equip 50 schools in remote areas with their own School Library in a Box and training for their teachers in how to get the most out of their portable library. Who knows what we’ll be able to do together by the end of the year?!
Did you have fun? It certainly seems so!
Many of you have already sent us your donations, but if you haven’t yet then do get in touch so that we can announce the grand total!
As lovers of and believers in books, we’re going to share as many stories as we possibly can about what a difference your World Book Day fundraising is making here on our blog and on Facebook.
And, because we appreciate all your efforts so, so much we are also going to be sharing as many of your stories as we can feature on the blog too.
Stay tuned for more great news from World Book Day!
