The need for instilling a love of reading has never been greater in Hong Kong as we deal with educational pressures from a prolonged period of virtual schooling due to Covid-19; compounding our city’s continued low literacy rankings globally for motivation, interest and confidence as demonstrated by our students’ reading habits.
Being able to be able to read calming and fun books together, has provided a huge respite for so many families in helping to reduce anxiety and forge a closer bond, particularly during times of increased stress and uncertainty, as recently highlighted in this article.
To continue to provide much-needed support to our beneficiary partners during this extremely challenging time, we have been innovatively providing various forms of support that is practical and immediate, including:
Bring Me A Book Hong Kong has sustained a 40% reduction in revenue since June 2019 and we are seeking funds to cover our core library, award-winning training and author programs for low-income families in Hong Kong.
From now until 31 October 2020, each dollar donated to Bring Me a Book Hong Kong will be doubled by The Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation (CYSFF) through #bridgethegaphk
If you believe in our work and support our vision and mission to improve family literacy, please consider some financial support from your HK$10,000 government cash handout to bring joyful and meaningful experiences to Hong Kong’s children and families.
