This is the post we’ve been waiting to push out for a long time but just needed to make sure everything was finalised … and now it is.
As the loyal STORY Sessions event regulars will know, this whole thing is not about us. It’s about you. Your neighbour. The people you’ll never meet that share this beautiful country with you.
Aside from sharing stories and inspiration, we love using STORY Sessions as a platform to give back and help those who are less fortunate than ourselves. We’re hoping that you’ll partner with us on the night of 15 Feb as we do just that.
Together with Adams Booksellers and Gcina Mhlophe, STORY Sessions #4 is giving us all a chance to give the gift of education to two desperately in-need schools in the area. We’re focusing on their school libraries. Short story: They’re in a shocking state. The buildings are worn, and the books are scarce. It’s the kind of issue that most of us with children don’t even have to face.Let’s not take it for granted. Let’s be apart of bringing new life back into the education of kids who are pursuing their futures despite the obstacles they face.
It’s no surprise that literacy and education lie so close to Gcina’s heart and we commend her for it, as well as Adams for their initiative in setting up this campaign with all of us.
How It Will Work
Adams Booksellers will be setting up a stall at STORY Sessions #4 where you can purchase from an impressive list of children’s books at a discounted rate, and then donate those books to the two schools we are supporting.
So set some cold, hard cash aside before the event and pay it forward to those who could benefit in countless way. You know what? They’ll even take your card card details and process them manually to make it easier to donate. There we go, cash or card … your choice.
In all likelihood we will even have some of the learners representing the schools in attendance, after parting with your money, feel free to part with your time: Say hello. Tell them you’re proud of them. Even just a smile.
Want To Help More?
If children’s education is something that tugs on your heartstrings, please don’t let us limit you to just purchasing books on the night.
If you’d like help out more or assist these schools in their pursuit for a quality education further than we’re allowing on the night, feel free to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can’t wait, see you there.
