Dear Lillie’s Friends,
I am pleased and proud to proclaim the official launch of Lillie’s Books on 22 November 2012 (see attached pic). A big thanks to Annabelle Viner, Children and Young Peoples Advocate, who attended the ribbon cutting event and spoke so eloquently on the valuable role books from Lillie and Friends play in the lives of children who find themselves without possessions of their own at the Eastern Adelaide Domestic Violence Service.
Annabelle came with some pictures of thanks drawn by children, including Victoria, who wrote on her picture “Reading is very special because it can take you in many different worlds”.
A huge welcome and thanks to the newest Friends of Lillie, especially to those who made generous donations. You know who you are. I am overwhelmed with your generosity. A big thanks to my brother Jeff who continued his birthday tradition of matching family donations to our chosen charity. $120 for Lillie’s Books [Laughing]
If you are a new Friend, here is how it works…you can donate money or new/as new books. If you donate money, you can let me know what YOUR favourite children’s books are and my shoppers will track them down. If you donate books, you know how to track me down!
Please know that ALL donated money goes to the purchase of books, NOT to administration, operations, volunteer costs etc.
To make a monetary donation transfer funds to the Lillie’s Books account at bsb 805-007 a/c# 00221268 OR
send money via PayPal to Lillie’s Books PayPal account at firstname.lastname@example.org.
