„Buy a Book” – a book fair with the mission of helping
For the 8th time already on 31st of August and 1st of September in Magnolia Park in Wroclaw there will take place an exceptional charity book fair for the Wroclaw Children Hospice Foundation. Again the main organizer of the event is Hewlett Packard Enterprise Wroclaw Center, in cooperation with the Foundation and ABSL (Association of Business Services Leaders in Poland).
The charity book fair ‘Buy a Book’ 2018 edition will be held on 31st of August and 1st of September in Magnolia Park in Wroclaw. The idea is simple: for 5 PLN, 10 PLN, 15 PLN or more, you can choose a book, a comic book or an audiobook – a real treat for reading enthusiasts! All those items are earlier collected among Wroclaw companies’ employees and donated on account of the ‘Buy a Book’. The beneficiary of this initiative is Wroclaw Children Hospice Foundation and all funds gathered during the event are dedicated to fulfilling the Foundation’s statutory goals.
The event is organized in cooperation of the ABSL, the Foundation and Wroclaw companies representing business services sector since 2013, and so far thanks to ‘Buy a Book’ editions over 100 000 PLN was collected to improve the quality of life, including rehabilitation, of the children under Foundation's care. Almost 100 volunteers worked during the 2017 edition, and more than 50 companies and organizations from Wroclaw were engaged in its organization.
On account of the 8th edition of the ‘Buy a Book’, aside from the traditional book fair, the organizers are introducing online charity auction via ‘Charytatywni Allegro’ where there will be many unique books available to purchase and the same support the good cause.
