The annual Blue Dragon Book Fair will be held in the Ngaio Town Hall in Wellington on Saturday 25 May 2019.
All of the money we raise – last year more than $14,000 – goes directly to Blue Dragon in Vietnam to help Michael Brosowski and his staff continue to do their fantastic work rescuing kids from danger, reuniting them with their families when possible, providing all the services needed for recovery and growth, and providing education and training. This includes street kids, children with disabilities, children from rural families living in extreme poverty, and victims of human trafficking and slavery.
Book fair donations and offers of help
1. We seek donations of books, CDs, DVDs, records, puzzles and board games in good condition. Please: no encyclopedias, Readers Digests, magazines or books in bad condition. Otherwise, many thanks indeed. We really appreciate your support. Please email or call one of the trustees listed below if you have any of these to donate. We would prefer to receive the donations after 22 April as we are renting space to store and pre-sort the books.
3. You can also help by spreading the word – for example, by letting you networks know about the book fair or putting up posters (contact a trustee if you want some) in your workplace or suburb.
4. Do come along to the book fair on Saturday 25 May – and encourage others to come – and buy books. You can stock up on a year’s reading for $2 or $3 per book – and support a great cause at the same time. It’s a great day.
We are extremely grateful to those of you who make regular donations to Blue Dragon. You can be sure that all of your contributions are used directly to save young lives and enable these children to thrive. We also appreciate the sterling efforts of students at Wellington College and Hutt International Boys School, who have been fundraising for Blue Dragon for several years.
A big thanks to you all for your continuing support of Blue Dragon.
