Family Fundraiser

A wonderful free community event for an amazing cause.

Adie and I were invited to take part in a Family Fundraiser last year organized by Healthy Planet!

Healthy Planet has a national Books for Free project, where they rescue great books heading for landfill or pulping and give them away for free. They invited us to join them at their spring celebration of community in Camden. The entrance was free for everyone and so all families, children, and friends were welcome.

There was Storytelling, book drop-offs, local businesses, games, entertainment, food and drink, a raffle prize, live music, and face painting. Music Audio Stories had a table stand where the community could come and meet us, listen to our audiobooks, buy CDs and badges and read and learn all about our stories. We also took part in the fancy dress but instead of dressing up as one of our favourite storybook characters, we dressed up as our own characters from our stories πŸ˜† Adie also won a raffle prize! It was so much fun.

Healthy Planet has given away millions of books to date, and need help raising money to get more books to children who can’t afford them. Please look them up and get involved here: Healthy Planet.
