180,000 Used Books as Low as HK$10 on Sale Proceeds to Benefit Needy Children

The annual Used Book Recycling Campaign, co-organised by World Vision Hong Kong and AEON Stores (Hong Kong) Co. Limited, kicks off today (25 July) at Plaza Hollywood in Diamond Hill. Over 180,000 used books, ranging from novels, leisure reading, children’s books and comics, to reference books, are on sale for as low as HK$10.

The Campaign will raise funds for World Vision’s early childhood education projects in the provinces of Guangxi and Shaanxi, China, to help nurture children’s virtues and impart basic knowledge to the young generation. World Vision welcomes the public to support the book sale, so as to allow more vulnerable children to pursue their dreams.

Alongside the sale, the campaign offers free books to children from low-income families. This year, 11 local NGOs participate in this scheme as their staff will take children to the event to select their favourite readers and experience the joy of reading.
