Do you love reading?
Help us build a library for the Portsea Camp and share the gift of reading with kids from all over Victoria.
Where there is not a culture of reading in the home or there are few books, children start life at a distinct disadvantage.
Reader’s Feast Bookstore and the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Fund are teaming up to build a library for the primary school-aged kids from disadvantaged backgrounds who attend the Portsea Camp as part of the Lord Mayor’s “Give it a Go!” program.
We need your help
Buy your favourite children’s book from Reader’s Feast Bookstore and donate it to the Portsea Camp so other kids can enjoy it as much as you do.
Simply visit Reader’s Feast Bookstore and purchase a children’s book. We will deliver your gift to the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Fund and, as well, we will donate $5 for every book gifted. The money raised will go to “Give it a Go!” enabling children from disadvantaged backgrounds to participate in fitness and nutritional programs at the YMCA, YWCA and the Portsea Camp. The Portsea Camp is a not for profit children’s charity with all funds being directed toward sponsoring disadvantaged and special needs children to school holiday camps.
