How it works
1. Sign up to be a Bookworm
2. Decide how many books you’re going to read
3. Spread the word – ask your friends, family and workmates to sponsor you
4. Get reading and in the process put books in to the hands of disadvantaged kids
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 disadvantaged kids within the Greater Western Sydney region.
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, make that pledge and encourage your friends and family to support you.
WestWords Ambassador, Bryan Brown encourages you to get involved in Booktober
