You Can Help Build a South African Library

One of the very many amazing things about UtopYA 2015 was meeting some truly inspirational and world-changing individuals.

One of those is Carlyle Labuschagne, who I have the great honour of being able to now call my dear friend. Not only is Carlyle a really kick-ass author with a great book series, called The Broken Destiny, but she is one of life's truly decent and big-hearted people.

Carlyle wants to make a difference - she already has, but she needs some help and that's where you come in.

Carlyle tapped her more than willing author buddies to donate paperback editions of their books to help her build a library in a part of South Africa where books are still considered somewhat of a luxury. What she needs now is the funds to get them shipped - and trust me, if this was a small amount of money then we'd have all covered that too - but getting goods into and out of South Africa is still a VERY expensive process.

If you are a book lover and want to share in the fellowship and sisterhood of reading, then I am reaching out to you to make a donation. Every single $1 and £1 helps towards this beautiful project.

You can read more about her truly inspiring campaign over at her website.

You can DONATE by clicking here. Every single penny and cent donated helps to build something amazing. Thank you.
