This year’s Blue Dragon Book Fair will be held in the Ngaio Town Hall on Saturday 20 May to raise funds and support the work of Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation in Vietnam.
There are several ways you can help with the book fair:
- Donate any unwanted books, DVDs, CDs or board games/puzzles in good condition. Unless essential, we would prefer to receive the donations after 1 May so they don’t take over our garages for months. See contact details at the end of this story.
- We want to form a subcommittee/group of helpers, who would help us in the six weeks leading up to the book fair. This group would help us promote the book fair, and collect and sort books into categories prior to the event. We already have some wonderful supporters who do this and so it’s making it more formal.
- If you don’t want to join the group but would like to help, we will need people to sort the books on to tables on Friday night 19 May from 6pm to about 9pm, and also to help on the day. You can also help by spreading the word (e.g. forwarding this email to your contacts, putting up posters we can supply in your workplace or suburb).
Of course, coming along to the book fair and buying books is an important and enjoyable way to support the book fair. You can stock up on a year’s reading for $2 or $3 per book – and support a great cause at the same time.
