Fundraising With a Difference – Buy an Alphabet Book and Support Variety - the Children’s Charity

the Alphabet Book - fundraising for Variety11 October 2012 - Two Brisbane based companies worked together to create this gorgeous Alphabet Book which is now being sold as a fundraiser for Variety - the Children’s Charity. The Alphabet Book is a great gift and will be perfect for under the Christmas tree and at the same time you know that you have contributed to a better life for children who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs to live, laugh and learn.

 

Months ago, pix2print – a Brisbane based photo book printing company, contacted Variety – the Children’s Charity with the idea of creating a fundraiser with photo books. Variety loved the idea and came up with the brilliant idea to make an Alphabet Book. After engaging Gillian van Niekerk from Vann Photography - one of the best photographers in Brisbane, the process of designing the Alphabet Book started.

 

The idea was to create an Alphabet Book with some letters being represented with photos that would easily be recognised by the younger children. We chose some traditional ‘a-z’ subject matter; the book begins quite naturally with A is for Apple but after that a few modern concepts sneak in.

 

"It was great fun creating the list, we had input from a wide range of people, including my young children", says photographer Gillian van Niekerk. Amongst the more unusual representations would be S for Sushi and Z for Zinc.

 

The book features leading questions to extend older children, and serve as a guide for prompting more discussion. The overview at the end of the Alphabet Book provides a great way to see if they remember what they have learnt in the book.

 

The Alphabet Book can be bought in 3 different options. They have created a 20x20cm soft cover, a lovely way to teach your child the alphabet, nice and light so you can take it anywhere. And there is also a hard cover option in the same size, great as a gift but also a fantastic addition to your child’s own library.

 

special edition Alphabet Book for the Variety fundraiserIf you want something really special you can also opt for the large 30x30cm Alphabet Book which allows you to submit your own photo for one of the letters of the alphabet. Before printing they will replace the photo of the letter of your choice with your own photo. And you can even add your own question to personalise the photo book even more.

 

So when learning the alphabet, your child can learn the E is for Emily or the M is for Mark and have their own photo in the Alphabet Book.

 

The special edition is also a great option for businesses who are looking for a great, high quality interactive book for in their waiting room or reception area, or who would love to show their support for Variety – the Children’s Charity. A business can send in their logo or a photo of their business which can replace the letter of their choice.

 

Alphabet Books can be bought online at www.pix2print.com.au/fundraising/variety/variety.htm.

 

Variety - the Children’s Charity receives no direct government funding and relies on your generous support to continue their amazing work.
