World Book Day wants to change lives through a love of books and shared reading. We believe that having access to books and developing a love of reading for pleasure is vital for a child’s future and we want to bring the magic of books to children and young people everywhere.
Every year, schools and nurseries across the country fundraise as part of their World Book Day celebrations. Thanks to these wonderful schools and nurseries, we can bring books to the children and young people who need them most – with World Book Day providing books in the UK and Ireland and Book Aid International sending books across the world.
Reading is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success.

There are lots of ways to get involved and help us with our mission. Whether you host a fun reading event at school, hold a sponsored reading challenge or organise your own unique fundraising event, we hope you make fundraising part of your World Book Day celebrations. Every £1 that you raise goes towards giving a child a book of their own, so no fundraising event is too small! Below you will find easy fundraising ideas and free resources to make your fundraising a big success.
NB If you are a school who fundraised for Book Aid International on World Book Day 2020, please refer to the Book Aid International website for details on how to pay your money in.
A partnership with World Book Day will give your organisation the opportunity to encourage more children, from all backgrounds, to develop the life-long habit of reading for pleasure that will improve their life chances.
World Book Day will help you to celebrate the importance of reading together, to fundraise creatively and to engage in inspiring volunteering opportunities. Your support will help World Book Day to support and encourage today’s children to be a generation of readers, and to offer every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.
