Each year we run our Christmas Campaign to get #abookineverystocking. Many children may miss out on this gift and a for this reason we have partnered up with Shropshire Council's Virtual School to make sure that Shropshire's Looked After Children have the gift of a book this Christmas.
Pledge your book to a looked after child before 15th December, after which books will be wrapped and delivered to the Virtual School in time for distribution to children for Christmas.
For every £7 donated a new book will be purchased for a child. Button & Bear will gift an additional new book for every 7 books donated by customers.
The Virtual School
The Virtual School acts as a local authority champion to promote the progress and educational attainment of looked-after children so they achieve educational outcomes comparable to their peers. Ensuring that they receive a high-quality education is the foundation for improving their lives.
With every pledge you will receive a certificate to say thank you. You can choose to have this collected from the shop / emailed out to you for free (alternatively it can be posted to you.
