For the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale Pampanga, it will kick-start the initiative by pledging 500 books and sale goers can also pay it forward by purchasing a book from the designated Red Readerhood booth at the Sale. Books received from the sale will be donated to Gawad Kalinga communities in the Philippines.
"Through our beneficiary partnership with Big Bad Wolf Books, we are looking forward to a future where libraries are the main feature of every barangay," said Luis OquiÒena, executive director of Gawad Kalinga.
"By giving the underserved communities an opportunity to learn and grow through the quality English books, we are helping to bridge the learning gap to create a more inclusive learning environment. We believe that everyone deserves to learn and in line with the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale mission, we hope through this partnership, we are able to change the world, one book at a time," he added.
