Get involved

The simplest way to help is to spread the word. The wider our network of champions, the more sponsors get on board. We’re on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram. Give us a follow and remember to tag us in any posts and use the hashtag #bookdash!


The fastest way to help is to donate to our cause. By helping us cover running costs, you help us get more books to more children. Card, SnapScan and EFT payments are all accepted.

If you’re in South Africa, then you can also sign up for a MySchool card and make us your beneficiary of choice. See here for more info.

If you or your organisation would like to sponsor a Book Dash product offering: Read about our events, print runs and translations in the Book Dash Prospectus and get in touch!
