Our book blog is one year old on 16 March. To celebrate, a few of us (mostly young teenagers) are holding a 24 hour sponsored Readathon on sat 24 March 2013. We aim to have reading going on continuously for 24 hours (yes, I know!). Progress (and fun updates) will be posted if we aren't too bleary eyed.
Please sponsor us! We have chosen to support Maranatha Care Children. They fund Siyakatala Youth Centre in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Siyakatala provides residential care for children and young people. Many of these children have lived on the street and never received any education.
Some of these children attend Protea Primary School which Maranatha also supports. Protea Primary is a school for traumatised children. Many of our friends and family members support this school by going and reading with the children who attend it.
Please donate to help give these children a better life and education. The money will go towards purchasing goods or services that Protea Primary has specifically requested. We are in direct contact with both Protea Primary and Maranatha Care Children and they can provide us with project updates.
Nanny Bee has reviewed for our blog and she said this about the children from Protea Primary:
