This is from Storylines. Can you help? I took my girls to these Family Days for years and now I participate as an author. They are gift!
Three days left to boost Storylines Family Days!
The Storylines Festival Family Days are nearly upon us and we have just three days left to reach our crowd-funding target of $10,000.
The Family Days are and always have been free for children and their families. There are now six of them round the country and every year thousands and thousands of New Zealand children get to meet the writers, illustrators and storytellers who are telling our stories right here and now, inspiring them to become eager and engaged readers and writers. You can see the fantastic line-up for each centre in this newsletter.
The thing is, the Family Days cost a lot to run, and Storylines Trust is a charity. This year Storylines is running a crowd-funding campaign to help cover the costs of the Family Days and we’d be over the goodnight moon if you’d join us by making a small donation to the cause. If we don’t make our target we have to refund all the donations to the existing donors.
I know we can do it with your help. Thank you so much to you many wonderful people who have already donated helping us achieve 58% of our target.
Here are some comments from some of our 50 generous donors. What encouraging words…thanks a million!!
Storylines! It has been 21 years of fun; fantasy; fantastic sparking of family joy in books and reading — and it is not over yet! On you go!
Here’s to another great year of Storylines Family Days. I will have grandchildren there for the first time this year. Hooray!
Go Storylines! Keep putting those local authors and illustrators together with children.
A great way to help Storylines keep on firing children’s imaginations.
Best $50 I ever invested!
A great organisation doing a lot to promote children’s literature in New Zealand.
Please help Storylines, every donation, however big or small, helps hugely.
