The charity organisation 1, 2, 3, Read 2 Me has a powerful vision that all children, regardless of their background or circumstances, should have access to quality books. The charity’s mission is to provide quality books and raise awareness of the importance of reading aloud to disadvantaged children across Australia.

For many children, access to books can be a challenge. This can be due to financial difficulties or living in remote areas where access to libraries is limited. Unfortunately, the lack of access to books can have a profound impact on a child’s development, particularly in terms of their literacy skills. That is why organizations like ‘1, 2, 3 Read to Me’ are essential in ensuring that all children have access to quality books.

The charity works to distribute quality books to children who may not otherwise have access to them. By doing so, they aim to promote a love of reading and increase literacy rates amongst disadvantaged children. Additionally, the charity seeks to raise awareness of the importance of reading aloud to children. Reading aloud has been shown to have numerous benefits, including improving vocabulary, comprehension, and critical thinking skills.

The donation bin at Preshil’s Arlington Campus plays an important role in supporting the work of ‘1, 2, 3 Read to Me.’ By donating books, we can help to provide disadvantaged children with access to quality reading material. The books donated to the bin will be sorted and distributed to children across Australia who need them the most.

Donating books is a simple but impactful way to support the work of ‘1, 2, 3 Read to Me.’ If you have any quality children’s books that are in good condition, consider donating them to the donation bin at Preshil’s Arlington Campus. By doing so, you will be helping to promote literacy and reading amongst disadvantaged children across Australia.
