Magical christmas stories

December can be a difficult month to get through if you are an at-risk child. Christmas can often feel like rubbing salt in an open wound, painfully emphasizing family problems instead of being a cozy celebration. That is why Read for your Life wants to help spread joy and Christmas spirit. We have collected many wonderful Christmas books that we want to send to residential institutions for at-risk children and young people. Along with the books we will include Christmas cookies and teas, which can help create the setting for a nice, quiet time enjoying a book.

 At the end of November, we are going to host an event where volunteers spend a day wrapping Christmas books and sending parcels with books and goodies to institutions that have previously received ordinary donated books from us. It is going to be a magical day where we collectively bring joy to at-risk children and youth who particularly need good stories in December.

 
Your donation goes to Read for Your Life and we will be accepting donations until 15 November 2018 



December kan være en svær måned at komme igen, hvis du er et udsat barn. Julen kan ofte være salt i såret og understrege problemerne i familien, i stedet for at være en hyggelig højtid. Derfor vil Læs for Livet være med til at give glæde og julestemning. Vi har indsamlet en masse dejlige julebøger, som vi gerne vil sende ud til institutioner, hvor udsatte børn og unge bor. Med pakkerne vil vi sende julekager og te med, der kan hjælpe med at sætte rammen for en rar læsestund.

 I slutningen af november vil vi lave en begivenhed, hvor frivillige  bruger en dag på at pakke julebøger ind og sende kasser med boggaver og lækkerier til steder, der tidligere har fået doneret almindelige bøger fra os. Det skal være en magisk dag, hvor vi er sammen om at glæde udsatte børn og unge, som har mest brug for gode historier i december.

 
Din donation går til Læs for Livet, og vi indsamler penge indtil d. 15. november.
