Give the gift of reading this Christmas
National Literacy Trust - Gift of Reading
Many children across the UK do not have books of their own, nor are they likely to receive any for Christmas this year. Donating just £7 will buy a book for one such child.
Blackwell's - Children's Giving Tree
Giving Trees in the Children's Departments of a number of Blackwell's shops are adorned with gift tags with requests from children who might not otherwise receive any presents (in association with local charities). Customers choose a tag and the booksellers wrap the requested book and deliver it to the child in time for Christmas. You don't have to live near a shop - gifts can be purchased online for £5.99 or £9.99.
Finally, Playing by the Book lists 125 Literacy / Book charities that you could choose from. Happy giving!
