Get ready for World Book Day 2021!
World Book Day and Book Aid International know that access to books is vital for children’s futures. We are working together to bring books to the children and young people who need them most both here in the UK and around the world.
This year, World Book Day takes place on Thursday 4th March and whether you’re at home or in school, there are still many ways in which you can get involved! Head to the Word Book Day website and discover the ways you can join in and help to make a real difference to children’s lives.
Every £2 we receive will help us to send another book, so whether you attend one of the Share a Story Live events, join in with some fun activities, take part in a challenge or run a readathon, you can help make a difference.
Our Chief Executive, Alison Tweed explained the impact that World Book Day has:
“No parent should have to send their children to school knowing that they will have only an old, tattered textbook and no reading books at all – but that is the reality for millions of parents around the world. At Book Aid International, we work to give as many children as possible access to beautiful, brand new books that will help them succeed in education and open new doors. We very much hope you will help us to send more books to people around the world who need them by fundraising this World Book Day.”
