Politics for Beginners for Everyone

As part of the #BookBuddy initiative, I want to get a copy of Politics for Beginners out to each of the schools that have signed up to the webpage, both as a thank you for signing up for the initiative and as part of getting good quality books into school libraries to help educate children.

Politics is such an important part of modern life and this is often left out of education as there is no space for it in the curriculum after all the government-dictated lessons are implemented.

Since #BookBuddy is mainly about getting people; such as reviewers, authors and publishers who have spare books to donate these to schools, I felt that there should be a way of letting people without these extra books help and crowdfunding is the answer.

To get a copy out to each of the 500 schools (as of 27th March 2018) would cost approximately £14 per book, including postage and packaging.

Therefore this would be approximately £7000 to fund this, but I would like  to get a bit more to ensure costs are covered and for the other schools that are sure to sign up before the end of the campaign.

It would be great if we could get this sorted before the end of the 2017/18 school year as I would like to do a crowdfunded campaign every year.

I know the schools that are getting books through the #BookBuddy scheme would be extremely appreciative of this as there is very little funding for books and any help is always welcome.

We have raised a small amount so far, but I’m going to withdraw this to get the ball rolling.

The first few schools should be seeing a copy of this by the end of the week.

I’m going to send them out in the order that schools signed up to the Book Buddy scheme.
