FOR A GOOD CAUSE

Toyota Connect/Lexus Life - - ROAD TRIP -

Ju­lia’s done this trip to pro­mote lit­er­acy and ed­u­ca­tion. “Un­til the age of 18, I was dyslexic and couldn’t read a book, so lit­er­acy’s close to my heart,” she says. She dis­trib­uted books and of­fered read­ing lessons to chil­dren along the way, help­ing to raise aware­ness of the Shine Lit­er­acy or­gan­i­sa­tion in Cape Town. On the Eu­ro­pean leg of her trip, she col­lected toys and books, gen­er­ously do­nated by old and new friends, which she’ll be dis­pers­ing at or­phan­ages on her route home.
