The Money

The incredible total of £15.7 million raised to date by the sale Harry's Books breaks down into two parts - and gets spent in two ways. The £4.8 million raised through the sales of Harry's books in the UK has gone in to the Red Nose Day grants pot to help make a difference in Africa and the UK.

The £10.8 million raised through the sales of Harry's books around the world (outside of the UK) has gone into a new International Fund for Children and Young People in crisis.

So far, we've allocated £6,126,407 of the money in this International Fund to projects working in the poorest countries of the world. This means that as you're reading this, that money is hard at work making a real and lasting difference, helping improve the life chances of children and young people who were facing a terribly troubled future - many of them alone.

This money is now helping children living and working on the streets of Guatemala city, young people working in horrific conditions in the carpet industry in Pakistan, and disabled children living in the slums of Bangalore.

Some of the other countries this fund is reaching includes Uganda, Bangladesh, Honduras, Russia, Croatia and Kenya.

What's in the International Fund for Children and Young People?

In this International Fund we have put money raised from the sales of Harry's books outside of the UK and 50% of the money raised for Sport Relief. The UK Government will also match every pound of the Sport Relief money allocated to projects helping children to get an education in the poorest countries of the commonwealth.
