A new year is underway and a new installment of our favourite series will be with us in May when The Necromancer gets it's release!
We all love our books and the places they take us to in our imaginations! It is with that in mind that we've decided to adopt a charity for the year, we've chosen to adopt the Book Wish Foundation. Their purpose is to build libraries in the refugee camps in war torn Darfur for all the children (and adults too!) to give them a little haven away from their suffering, and to encourage and maintain literacy.
There are a couple of ways you can help us support their great work:
You can blog about it, Tweet about it, let all your Myspace and Facebook friends know about it and tell your friends at school about it. Every time you help spread the word it helps more people find out about them.
The second way you can help is to buy a brick, each brick costs just $2, to do that just click on the donate brick button on our Portal main page. You can even donate a brick in memory of someone, or to honour someone. If you'd like to honour someone then they will send the person you wish to honour an email if you provide them with the details. They need 5,000 bricks to build a library big enough to hold 5,000 books which will serve a 20,000-30,000 person camp.
If you'd like to read more about the project and see other ways that you could help support their cause then go to http://bookwish.org/library-builder You can also follow them on Twitter (@bookwish) Myspace and Facebook (Book Wish Foundation).
If you are one of our younger members please make sure to show your parents the information if you would like to be involved!
