Bring A Book, Buy A Book: 1 to 8 March 2015

February 13, 2015

We are once again supporting the St. Michael’s House Bring a book, Buy a book 2015. Book lovers are asked to bring books from their home and buy those from their colleagues for €2. This can be hosted in a School, Club or Business. There are over 90,000 books exchanged during this week raising over €38,000 for Intellectual Disability.

Funds raised through the campaign will directly support the 2015 FETAC educational project for young adults with intellectual disabilities. There are nine course options to date in areas of health, finance and technology.  This formal Fetac level 2 qualification will enable adults to improve their opportunities to further their education and to seek employment.

Irish rail are supporting book  Pop up Shops  based in Connolly or Heuston during this week. Take a browse and buy a book to help support St. Michael’s House services. Look out for the  daily ‘Golden Ticket’ prizes that will pop-up in each of the shops. Win a prize at each Pop up shop!

Follow @stmichaelshouse on twitter and facebook for a clue each day to help you get on the right track!

If you not get to visit our Pop ups, you can also support by taking part in #PassTheBook on facebook or twitter. This is a great way for book lovers to top up their reading lists. Help take the joy of books viral!

  • Nominate your fellow book lovers to do the same.
