I’m proud to announce that we raised $20,450 to buy 20,450 local language books for kids in the developing world through Room to Read in 2021 via our Writer Ambassador team. A big thanks to Somerset College, Renaissance International School, Newington LitFest & Bunbury Catholic College who raised a total of $5696. Thanks to the schools who purchased Young Writers Story School, triggering a donation. Other highlights were the Teacher Librarian Professional Learning Conference raising $1000, and direct donations of $1000 from our amazing Writer Ambassador team. Our inspiring leader Jodi Mullen ran a sourdough workshop, raising $2,850, and quilting projects of $3099.
