We are collecting new books to donate to tamariki at the Auckland City Mission and the Auckland Women's Refuge this Christmas
Please donate your brand new shiny book here!
BOARD BOOKS | PICTURE BOOKS | CHAPTER BOOKS | MIDDLE GRADE | YOUNG ADULT
Donations need to be in by 9 DECEMBER 2019
Please, no second-hand books; these kids are generally having a pretty rough time and deserve something shiny and new, and please choose a book by a New Zealand writer or illustrator if you can so that we can support local authors, publishers and booksellers while we are at it.
All books will be delivered to the City Mission and the Women’s Refuge who will distribute them as Christmas presents to the young people who are using their services this Christmas.
No need to wrap the books, as the agencies need to know what books they are distributing, but if you would also like to donate a roll of wrapping paper, they would very much appreciate that too!
If you are outside of Auckland, please post your donation to:
