The flow of books has steadily increased during the last seven days of our April #WeheartPost campaign, with one donor even bringing an entire bakkie load full.

Since we started April’s Freedom Month drive, titled “Books = Freedom”, receiving the books has not been a problem. People are going out of their way to donate.

However, very few have nominated a beneficiary.

With the amount of books streaming in with reading pleasure for all ages, we should be able to give them to at least two beneficiaries this month.

Send your nominations to post@­peoples­post.­

While the deadline for nominations is Sunday30 April, we can only receive book donations until Friday 28 April.

Help us to help a word-hungry organisation out there celebrate their freedom through learning.

To those of you who are making each month’s campaign a success: Thank you.

Donations of books for our #WeheartPost Books = Freedom campaign can be dropped off at our offices at 112 Edward Street in Bellville or at Vangate Mall’s centre management in Athlone.
