Working with School Aid - an update

4th March 2016

School Aid is a charitable organisation that supports education in Africa by providing good quality materials to meet the diverse needs of disadvantaged children in poor communities.

The relationship between Usborne Books at Home and School Aid goes back a number of years, with many Organisers and Leaders having donated books or free book allowances to this wonderful cause. But in 2016, as we celebrate our 35th Birthday, we want to do something even bigger and better by raising enough money to establish an Usborne library in Africa.

An update...

Until 30th April 2016, all Quickstart Programme achievements will result in further donations to School Aid. In February, we have had 78 Kit Boost achievers, 35 Kit Refund achievers, 4 Recruiter's Reward achievers and one Double Promotion Bonus achiever. These amazing results have meant that our total has reached over £6000! Once again, thank you to everyone who has played their part in our fundraising.

The next push...

Remember that you can get involved in this incredible cause wherever you are in your journey. The donations from Usborne Books at Home work as follows:

£10 for every Kit Boost
£15 for every Kit Refund
£20 for every Recruiter's Reward
£35 for every Double Promotion Bonus

Take a look at the Passport to Success booklet today to see how you (or your Mentee) can reach each milestone.

Also, for the entire period in which we are redeeming World Book Day tokens (26th February - 3rd May 2016), you or your customers can choose to donate a portion, or indeed all, of a party or school event's free book allowance to School Aid.

Our webpage includes lots more information about this exciting new Usborne fundraiser and how you can get involved. Why not take a look?
