About Tax Appeal 2018 - Dymocks Children's Charities

An  astonishing 1 in 7 kids who leave school today are unable to read and write well*. Yes you read that correctly - 1 in 7. We at Dymocks Children's Charities are determined to change that - but we need your help! We have over 1,000 kids waiting to join one of our unique literacy support programs. Kids like Joe. Joe is 6yrs old and lives in regional Victoria. He has to travel over 100kms to attend school which is the only place he can access any reading material. With your help our literacy support programs can help Joe and other kids like him.

Our programs:

Book Bank Program - provides kids in primary schools in priority locations books of their choice so they can own and share books and cultivate a love of reading.

Library Regeneration Program -  restocks school libraries where there is insufficient school funding or following a natural disaster.

Duck Libraries - contain 50 age appropriate books for pre school kids at locations in priority areas around Australia. It has a fully themed bookcase and is supplemented with an extra 15 books in the 2nd year.

So far this financial year we have helped 18, 463 kids at 124 schools receive 33,449 new books, but there is so much more to do!

Can you help us, help kids, this Tax Time?
