It’s a beautiful week to explore the richness of the season and most importantly, to begin the journey of our #CHILDHERO short story blog contest!

Every year, Peregrine Reads is pleased to organize contests that can add value to humanity. Last December, we pulled the curtains up with our #12DaysofChristmas poetry contest and this year, we are pulling up the curtains again with the #CHILDHERO short story contest; aimed at telling the stories of the disadvantaged children in our midst, to bring a re-birth to their lives through vivid images that can connect us back to them and awaken our spirit for a deeper call for responsibility towards the children.

I wish to extend my sincere gratitude to those that have assisted in spreading word on the #CHILDHERO contest and to the blogs that assisted in extending the news about the contest. Massive thanks to you!
