Edie the Amazing

Great Kiwi Bookathon 2022

I reckon that this is the greatest thing that could have been done to get kids reading!!! This is a fantastic cause!!

The Great Kiwi Bookathon is a first for Blind Low Vision NZ.

Throughout the month of June I will be joining 3000+ Kiwi schoolkids and reading as many books as I possibly can.

I’ll be raising money for those who are blind, deafblind or have low vision so please support me in this.

I also have low vision myself, and I’m also hearing impaired, and I fully believe that this is a fantastic reason to get kids to help people like me, and to get them reading.

Have a lovely day!
