Great Kiwi Bookathon 2022

Making books and reading more accessible

I'm joining Blind Low Vision NZ to raise funds for tamariki in Aotearoa. Everyday I'll be reading aloud on facebook and doing shout outs to my sponsors.

I will be putting the names of my sponsors over $15 into a draw at the end of the month and drawing out 2 to win a book and handmade prize from me. 

Reading and access to reading materials is something I am very passionate about. I would love you to join me. Ngā manaakitanga - Miriam
