we did it! | teapigs book drive

Posted by Lola Tanner on

Huzzah! GREAT news! 

You might have seen that in March we launched the teapigs book drive with the fab Point Foundation to raise money for 5,000 textbooks for The House of Children School in Gisenyi, Rwanda - where we source a lot of tea for our english breakfast. This was because since the lockdown, the Rwandan government changed the curriculum for lower primary students, so all the books we had previously donated were no longer able to be used.

We're SO pleased to announce that at the start of this month, just in time for International Children's Book Day, we successfully got those much-needed textbooks over to The House of Children School! 
For every donation given, we gifted a perk as our way of saying thanks. For those who donated over $50 (that's 5 books!), we wanted to give them a special shout out here on the blog. So...

a huge round of applause & big thanks go to: 

  • Matthew W. 
  • Emily P.
  • Judy W. 
  • Angela B. 
  • Emily Y. 
  • Wendy W.
