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.

Take part in Booktober this October and fundraise to help kids doing it tough within the Greater Western Sydney region.
