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!

Support Book Dash with MySchool!

Are you looking for a meaningful way to support the work that Book Dash does to create new, open African storybooks in all South African languages, and put them in the hands of children that need them?

Why not sign up for a MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card and make us your beneficiary of choice? If you already have one, you are allowed up to three beneficiaries, and can simply add us to your list! We’ve been provisionally approved as a beneficiary, but now need at least 50 people to pledge to support us, in order to be officially added to the database of charities and begin benefitting from the programme. You’ll need to fill in this form:…/MySchool_Digital_Application_Form… and return it to us by emailing it to The sooner, the better because there is a time limit for us to complete our application.

We would so appreciate your support in this, as we continue to work towards a future where every child owns one hundred books by the age of five.
