Brighton Montessori: Donate a Book and Change a Life in October

Mast Head

What do you do with books your kids have outgrown?

In the month of October, you can donate the books to children overseas as part of Brighton Montessori’s book collection drive.

Organised in conjunction with Brighton Montessori’s 20th anniversary, the book donation initiative aims to collect over 3,000 children’s books for schools, community libraries and orphanages overseas.

To mark the occasion, a charity event, Donate a Book, Change a Life, will be held on 3 October 2015, 1 pm to 4pm at Brighton Montessori, Great World City.

Activities planned for the day include story-themed game booths, hourly story dramatisation, mandarin storytelling, music and movement, and craft stations conducted by Brighton’s own teachers.

Donate A Book

Brighton Montessori has partnered with local group, Help a Child, Donate a Book, for the distribution of the books. Since 2013, Help a Child, Donate a Book has been distributing books to children in countries such as Cambodia, Myanmar, China, Sri Lanka, West Timor and Nepal.

While all children’s books are welcomed, the drive targets children’s books for ages 0 to 8 years old. Used books are accepted but those in slightly better condition are appreciated.

Donate A Book

Books can be dropped off at Donate a Book, Change a Life on 4 October, or at any Brighton Montessori branch from Monday to Friday, 7.30 am to 6 pm, and Saturday, 9 am to 12 pm, in the month of October.
