Dymocks bookstores are running a two-week Books for Kids charity campaign, with 50 cents from every children’s book sold to be donated to literacy support programs through Dymocks Children’s Charities.
The campaign runs from 12-26 August. Dymocks said more than 12,000 disadvantaged students will receive new books through the campaign.
Children’s authors supporting the campaign include UK author David Walliams and local authors Sally Rippin, Jacqueline Harvey, Adam Spencer, Louise Park, Aaron Blabey and Leigh Hobbs.
A YouGov survey commissioned by Dymocks found that on average, Australian children owned 18 books at home, while nearly four in 10 children owned less than 11 books.
I am thrilled to be part of this very special campaign and proud to be an ambassador for Dymocks Children’s Charities. To learn how you can get involved watch the promotional video below (and get book buying!).
