The Beautiful Poetry Book Collection Campaign


Window 1

Window 2

The lovely people at Poetry sent this to me because we all know how much I adore books – and I love programmes that support literacy and getting books into people’s hands.

The beautiful folded book mobiles that are hanging in the windows are the result of a wonderful collaboration with the talented Shaw Sisters– Durban-based entrepreneurs.

To celebrate our love for books and the importance of literacy, we have launched a campaign whereby you can donate any books or buy a bookmark for R10 at any Poetry store.

Books will be sent and all the funds from the sale of the bookmarks will be donated to one of our trusted partners, Ikamva Labantu, for their much needed Literacy Programme.

For more information on iKamva Labantu –

This clever and beautiful Poetry Campaign runs until the 19 August 2013 – so stop in at any Poetry Store and donate a book, buy a bookmark.

Donate some books to a great cause, and find a way to walk around and buy gorgeous goodies from Poetry.  I do not think it is possible to not pick up things, rub them, smell them in Poetry – one of my favourite stores – I feel all airy and fairy when I walk around the store, it is like scratching your “best friend who has such good taste’s” cupboard.

Side bar:  The lovely people at Poetry will be giving me some of the lovely folded book mobiles to give away when the campaign is over.

Did I just hear you squeak?  Or was it just me?  Book folded mobiles …. oh my.

If you want to receive a gorgeous, unique book folded mobile and be the envy of your book/wine club –  then leave a comment on this blog post — you can leave a comment until 12 August 2013 – you will need to be in South Africa to receive this one.

Winner picked randomly — sort of!
