Mazda New Zealand is a proud supporter of The Alan Duff Charitable Foundation - better known as Duffy Books in Homes. Breaking the cycle of ‘booklessness’ the charity aims to provide free books to over 100,000 New Zealand children each year.
The Duffy Books in Homes team can be seen out in the community behind the wheel of two Mazda CX-5s. The vehicles enable the staff to get out and about and visit schools and students participating in the programme.
Every year, two groups of travelling actors’ journey from North Cape to Bluff bringing the It's Cool to Read and Cool to Achieve message to Kiwi kids across the country, with an exciting live 45-minute show. The CX-5s help the charity reach over 500 schools and share a love of reading with hundreds of children.
Kids who can't read become adults who can't communicate and that's a serious disadvantage in a world that operates on the written word. So, since 1994 Duffy Books in Homes have given away more than ten million books!
