HOBBITS FOR KIDS IN CARE
An Initiative of The Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship.
Donate a Hobbit Book or other children’s book to our cause to collect books for children who are in Foster and Statutory Care. Each book will be presented as a gift to a child who has been removed from the family home. These children are removed from their homes due to some form of abuse, trauma or neglect
Our goal is to achieve a target of 1500 Hobbit & Other Children’s Books before October 14th. The books will be presented at our Annual Dinner Dance to The Pyjama Foundation.
The Pyjama Foundation helps bring some quality and normality to the lives of over1300 children in foster care from Cairns to Melbourne in Australia.
The Pyjama Foundation, provides children in foster care the opportunity to change the direction of their lives with learning, life skills and confidence. Through the Love of Learning program, volunteers called ‘Pyjama Angels’ are recruited, screened, trained and then matched with a child in care and spend time with them once a week, focusing on learning-based activities. Pyjama Angels read books aloud with their child, play educational games and help children with their homework. Most importantly, the volunteers give foster children a chance to reach their life potential, despite a fragile start. Children in care have the lowest education outcomes nationally. By improving their learning skills, The Pyjama Foundation is making a positive, life-long impact.
