Share what you’re up to for World Book Day
So we’ve told you a bit about Meet Talk Give and some of the other great ways you can support World Book Day. And over the next few weeks we’ll be telling you lots more, including tips on how to have a great time fundraising, and insights into how your funds will make a difference.
But more than all that, we’d like to hear from you about what you’ll be up to! And there are loads of ways to do it.
Share it on Facebook Join our Facebook page to stay up to date with posts on this blog and other news from Book Aid International. You’ll see what others are doing, and be able to share what you’re up to, whether it’s with Meet Talk Give, supporting it in your library, or something else altogether. If you want to add fan photos, then so much the better!
Tweet You can follow us on Twitter at @Book_Aid and we’ll be using the hashtag #worldbookday2011 for the next few weeks.
Share your pics on Flickr If you’re doing something socially with Meet Talk Give, why not take a few snaps and share them with our new World Book Day group on Flickr?
JustGiving If you’re web-savvy, you could use a site like JustGiving for your fundraising. It lightens the load because all the money goes directly to Book Aid International, meaning you don’t have to collect all those coins or do the admin afterwards.

However you do it, please do tell us what you get up to.
