How it works
1. Sign up to be a Bookworm
2. Decide how many books you’re going to read OR for how long each day you'll read
3. Spread the word – ask your friends, family and workmates to donate to your page
4. Get reading and feel good about making a difference in kid's lives!
What is Booktober™?
Booktober™ is quite simply an annual event held during the month of October encouraging people to read more books!
In the process, each person (affectionately known as a Bookworm!) can opt in to raise funds to support WestWords in providing books and literacy programs to under resourced schools within the Greater Western Sydney region that may not have access to these types of opportunities.
There’s lots of walks, runs and shaves for charity but now there’s an event where you can stop, breathe and read a book – all for a good cause! It’s really simple. Decide how many books you’ll read during October OR how long for each day you’ll read, make that pledge and encourage your friends and family to support you with a secure online donation.
You can give a kid a book and feed their imagination for a day. Or you can teach them how to write their own stories and change their lives forever.
Through Booktober, together we can do both!
