News from the English Book Sale

Dear Friends of the English Book Sale

No doubt you will have assumed this from the general situation, but sadly we have to inform you that we won’t be able to hold our usual early spring clearance sale as planned. Let’s hope we’ll have better news later in the year. Please do, however, get in touch with Kirsten if you need to offload your books urgently, for example if you’re moving house. You can contact her on 01525 348 2657 (preferably by WhatsApp), to arrange a possible drop-off. 

There is one small way in which you can still help us: as most of you know, the entire takings of our sales go to support our partner community in Ilembula, Tanzania via the dedicated charity we have set up, Ha-Ile e.V. (= Haar-Ilembula). The money chiefly goes to support young people, especially AIDS orphans, and enable them to attend school or follow training courses. Schools and other educational establishments are open as usual in Tanzania and our beneficiaries desperately need our continued financial support in order to continue and complete their education. We currently have no income from our sales of course, but one way in which you could help us would be to support our charity whenever you shop via Amazon Smile.

It’s very straightforward: simple open up, which has exactly the same range of products and prices as the main Amazon site. Then from the pop-up list of charities, select HA-ILE e.V. Partnerschaft Haar-Ilembula as your preferred charity. Amazon will then donate 0.5% of the price of your purchase on the site to our charity. Individually they are only very small sums, but collectively we should be able to continue to support these educational initiatives and continue to make a difference to young Tanzanians’ lives and chances.

We thank you for your support, stay safe!

Your Book Sale Team
