Booktober - Turning the Page on Disadvantage
This Booktober we want to put as many books in to the hands of underprivileged kids as we can. And we need your help to do it. 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 and make that pledge. For every book you read, make a donation to provide a book to a child who needs it the most.
By being a BookWorm this Booktober you're pledging to read a certain number of books to raise money to support WestWords in providing both books and literacy programs to disadvantaged children within the Greater Western Sydney region.
There's a couple of ways you can take action. You can donate yourself - $10 for every book you read in Booktober (which will put a brand new book into the hands of a kid who needs it) or you can rally your friends and family and get them to sponsor you for each book you read.
