Can you still remember the first book you were gifted? I can still remember it to this day.
The little inscriptions on the inside cover of your favourite book, gifted by someone special, are mementos that can have a grand impact on our lives.
COVID-19 has demonstrated more than ever how our world lives in disparity & that less privileged communities are suffering the hardest.
Not being allowed to go to school or the SCORE Centre with their usual sports & other leisure activities has been hard for the children in the Franschhoek community.
SCORE has been supporting approximately 300 children in the Franschhoek community with small activity packs throughout lockdown.
The kids have loved their packs and the ECD teachers have been equally thankful for the support.
How fabulous would it be if every child to find their very own book in one of these packs? One for them to keep?
From this very first spark of an idea, our Score300 initiative was born. We love books and feel every child should be exposed to the magic of reading from as early as possible.
While we cannot see each other much this year, at least we can share some love.
Buy any of our Whimsical Karoo Story books and the same book will be donated to one of the Score children
Choose between 5 great titles:
- The Little Meerkat, Who Saw The Sun (English)
- The Two Hearts
- The Shooting Star
- The Little Treehouse
- Die Kleine Meerkat Wat die Son Gesien het (Afrikaans)
Want to add a special note to accompany your gift? (optional)
Just type your special inscription into the Order Notes field at checkout & we will make sure the child that receives your book, also receives your magic note. We are sure the children will appreciate your encouragement & kind words to accompany them for life.
Since my childhood I have always loved reading and getting lost in another world of imagination. I decided to start writing my own stories to share with my little son and other kids around the world. These stories are inspired by the Karoo and animals in and around the region.
