Thank You for #TheBookMonsoon
Phew! It has been an exciting month for us at Pratham Books. Last month, we launched #TheBookMonsoon to mark Donate-a-Book‘s 3rd birthday. We asked if you could help us raise funds for 3000 books in 30 days. But guess what? YOU donated 3000 books in just 8 days! And you wouldn’t stop. Over 12,000 books have been donated to several campaigns during this period.
