Thanks to this school and to the hardworking librarian Dori for organizing this great initiative. The award, in the form of a beautiful statue depicting "The Giving Child", is presented each year to the school that has delivered the largest number of books per student to Read to Grow.


Read to Grow in action for Serious Request
In December 2021, Read to Grow participated in Serious Request by the Glass House, an action by a number of DJs from the 3FM station. This year's Serious Request campaign focused on climate change and the protection of forests. The money raised is intended for the World Wildlife Fund.
Read to Grow has also started an action in this context. The title was 'Save trees, donate books'. Books also deal with climate and forest conservation. Paper production is responsible for 14 percent of the felling of trees. The campaign resulted in 3,861 books for Read to Grow and €1964 for Serious Request.
