To celebrate World Book Day on 3rd March 2022, independent, online children’s bookseller, Books2Door, is donating 18,000 free books to several charities, libraries, schools and hospitals across the UK. Confirmed partners include The Children’s Literacy Charity, Alder Hey Children’s Charity, several primary schools and regional libraries.
With World Book Day 2022 coming up, the donation demonstrates their commitment to “make books accessible for all children.” The donation also coincides with Books2Door’s 18th birthday on 2nd March 2022 and as part of the campaign, the company has also invited social media followers to come forward with their own suggestions of where books can be donated.
This is not the first time Books2Door has offered free books. Illustrating their commitment and dedication to providing access to reading, the company also donated almost 20,000 brand new children’s books in 2021:
As part of the campaign, Books2Door is also encouraging other charity partners to get in touch should they wish to participate in the generous scheme.
Abdul Thadha, founder of Books2Door says, “I can’t believe we’re celebrating 18 years. During and post-pandemic, we have seen the love for reading at an all time high, but our main focus is to ensure parents and children can access books at a cost that they can afford. At the same time, we recognise that not every child has this. That’s why we are donating 18,000 brand new children’s books across the country for free. We would like to thank every partner that has been involved and we hope this is the start of a long-term relationship with each of them.”
Senior Community Fundraising Manager of Alder Hey children’s charity, Axon Irene said, “What a wonderful gift for our patients to receive” and a spokesperson for The Children’s Literacy Charity, upon receiving the donation said, “We are incredibly grateful to Books2Door for their donation of books which will benefit the children who attend our partner primary schools in London and Manchester.”
The 18,000 books have been provided by Sweet Cherry Publishing, Books2Door’s sister company, of which Abdul is also the Managing Director.
