The Book Trust Christmas Appeal raises money to send books to vulnerable, or in care children. Christmas can be hard for such children but just one book can brighten their Christmas.
Through the Letterbox Club, they send book parcels out during the year to children who are vulnerable or in care.
For many of the children, it may be the first time they have had a letter or parcel through the post, and for some, these may be the first books they’ve owned.
The Book Trust Christmas appeal raises money to send them a special parcel at what can be a hard time of year; it may be their first festive season away from their family, or there may be no money to buy presents.
This year, your donation could help send surprise book gifts to over 12,250 vulnerable children to bring joy and brighten their Christmas and support our work through the year.
The six selected hard-backed books, which will be sent to match the age of the child Maisy’s Funfair, The Paddington Treasury, Very Important Animals, Great Adventurers, Guinness World Records 2020 and An Anthology of Intriguing Animals. Each child will also receive a letter from Waterstones Children’s Laureate Cressida Cowell and a special festive poster and bookmark by Neal Layton.
Donate £10 today and you can bring joy to a child with a surprise book and brighten their Christmas.
