Flubit to continue its support for the National Literacy Trust by giving away books to schools

Press Release   •   Sep 05, 2014 10:07 BST

Online shopping service Flubit.com is continuing its Book Month into September by asking children, parents and schools to get involved to support the National Literacy Trust.

To take part they want kids nationwide to draw a picture of a character from their favourite children’s book, parents or teachers to photograph it and email to books@flubit.com.  For every picture sent Flubit will donate £5 to the National Literacy Trust and will send a free children’s book to the parent or school to say thank you.

Bertie Stephens CEO and Founder of Flubit said  “With over 150 book reviews sent in by our customers and thousands of pounds raised for the National Literacy Trust our Book Month has already been a huge success.  Now that the summer holidays are over we’d like to get kids, parents and schools involved to continue our celebration of books, support the NLT and raise even more money”

For those parents or teachers that prefer to Tweet Flubit will also donate a £1 for every ‘micro review’ of a children’s book using hashtag #flubitbooks. 

Anna Jones, Development Manager at the National Literacy Trust, said "It's wonderful that Flubit have chosen to extend its Book Month into September. We hope that it will continue to raise awareness of the importance of literacy and encourage reading for pleasure and what better way to do that than by encouraging children and schools nationwide to get involved. The campaign will continue to provide vital support for the National Literacy Trust's work in improving literacy in disadvantaged communities."

Pictures can be submitted to books@flubit.com and more information about the initiative can be found at www.flubit.com/books
