We have been so lucky to receive support from the International Book Project who are sending two boxes of english textbooks and easy readers in September!
Today is a week until I go to Greece and start setting things up. The crowd funding has a week left and every little donation will get us closer to be able to create a place where the refugees can sit, enjoy and study hard for the coming future. A part from buying books we will need storage boxes, mats and building material. Everything counts - Please help out and share to friends and family
The great people behind ´Vinyl Fantasy´ are throwing a fundraising event for ´Books 4 Refugees´ 6th August at the Haggerston Pub, 438 Kingsland Road. 5 DJ will be spinning only original records and last month they raised money for Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). Feeling very lucky to have such amazing people on board!
Its another beautiful day! An email from Better World Books came through and they are kindly donating about 80 english books for children and adults. A delivery also arrived from wonderful DK Publishing.
Nothing is better than to wake up with a text saying that you have had a delivery! I want to thank Usborne Publishing for these amazing Arabic-English learning materials. Also, the crowd funding has reached one quarter of its target which is exciting! Hopefully soon I will be able to order some additional material and then it will be time to start setting things up!!
The amazing mmbooks have decided to print specially for us a bunch of arabic language educational books for the children in the military camps in Greece! My mind is full of images of the young children I have met who finally might be able to go to school again.
Just received these wonderful children books from Plurabelle Books in Cambridge - I know a few little ones that cant wait to get their hands on these!
This morning I received a beautiful email from Mantra Lingua. They are supporting 'Books 4 Refugees' by donating 25 of their wonderful Arabic/English children books! And the crowd funding has started - a massive thank you to the once who have contributed!
I have been carrying around this idea for weeks and now finally have put it into action. Already there are some amazing individuals and organisations gathering to support by donating books. A very humble thanks to:
Darien Book Aid
Arab British Center
The Al Saqi Bookshop
Exciting times ahead!
