World Book Day is around the corner, a day celebrating everything to do with books.
But can you imagine what it must feel like to have never held a book?
No one should live in a world without books, yet around the world, millions of people don’t have them at home or at school.
That’s where one charity called Book Aid International comes in…
Book Aid International think everyone should be able to access books because books help people succeed in school and allow them to imagine new things.
Every year, thanks to the generosity of people like you, the charity sends around one million brand new books to thousands of libraries, schools and refugee camps where people have very few books to read.
In an average year, over 24 million people read the books they provide. That’s like 100,000 schools!
Luckily, people like you can help!
Every year, children, families and schools across the UK come together on World Book Day to send more books to people around the world who need them.
It costs just £2 to send a book, and last year children just like you raised over £140,000 – that’s enough to send 70,000 books!
If you want to be a part of fundraising for Book Aid International this World Book Day, there are plenty of ways you can take part…
We’re sharing some of Book Aid International’s great dress-up guides. If you find them helpful, you could donate £1 to say thank-you.
