Sant Jordi Charity Book Drive (23 – 30 Apr 2016)

Sant Jordi Charity Book Drive (23 – 30 Apr 2016)

My Little Spanish Place will be holding a Charity Book Drive from 23rd to 30th April 2016. La Diada de Sant Jordi (Saint George’s Day) is a Catalan holiday, where men gave women roses, and women gave men a book to celebrate the occasion. The giving of books is a more recent tradition originating in 1923, when a bookseller started to promote the holiday as a way to commemorate the nearly simultaneous deaths of Miguel Cervantes and William Shakespeare on 23 April 1616. Catalonia exported its tradition of the book and the rose to the rest of the world, and in 1995, UNESCO adopted 23 April as World Book Day.

It is with the tradition of exchanging books that we will be holding a Charity Book Drive, whereby all proceeds will be donated to Child at Street 11.

Donate a children’s book and/or cash (min. $10), and receive
a complimentary caña glass of draft beer or dessert

Child at Street 11 is a childcare centre run by a registered charity organization in Singapore for children from disadvantaged homes and abusive backgrounds. It accepts children from all races and religions.

The centre runs quality early years programmes for children aged 18 months to six years old from low income families, some of which are from dysfunctional homes. The centre also runs after-school-care programmes for the graduates from K2 who proceeds to Primary school education as they still need continuous support from the centre. About a third of the families are from single parent homes.

We thank you for your kind donation!
