Bookworm's Top 4 Fundraising Tips
Fundraising Tip 1
Share your own story – let your friends, family and work colleagues know that you’re a Bookworm! Encourage them to support your reading challenge during Booktober™ by sharing your fundraising page on Facebook, Instagram, Email or whatever platform works for you and your crew. Don't be shy! 85% of people donate because they are asked.
Fundraising Tip 2
Keep your friends updated with your progress – whether it be in raising funds or letting them know the books you are reading. You can post a review and a gentle reminder of why you have signed up as a Bookworm for Booktober. Remind them why you believe literacy and storytelling is so important. Imagine what your world would be like without this basic human right.
Fundraising Tip 3
Put together a team of Bookworms and build your own online book club. Pick a fundraising target and choose which books your group will read (check out some of our suggestions here) then share your reviews. If you're already part of a book club, join up as a team and host a special Booktober event. Contact us and we may even be able to provide you with an author to speak!
Fundraising Tip 4
Donate to yourself – kick off your fundraising with your own donation (all donations over $2 are tax deductible too) and show your crew how committed you are to reading more and raising funds for Booktober.
