Bring joy to children this Christmas with the magic of books
A gift from you could mean a child finally has a book to call their own.Donate now
For so many of us, the magic of books begins as a child.
It’s a cuddle and a story before bedtime. It’s reading about monsters and mayhem whilst being safely tucked up in bed. It’s that new book smell which promises adventure and faraway lands. It’s unlocking an imagination that can last a lifetime.
Yet for too many children, books are a luxury their family can’t afford. They may never have had a book to call their own.
But you could change this.
BookTrust wants to deliver book parcels to food banks across the country to make sure that, as well as food on the table, children have presents under the tree. We’re also hoping to deliver books to children in care, who may be spending their first Christmas in an unfamiliar home.
As well as a book — or two! — our festive book parcels include a beautifully illustrated bookmark and poster plus a heartfelt letter from an author.
But it’s so much more than a book parcel. It’s joy. It’s wonder. It’s discovering worlds unknown. It’s making sure children feel special this Christmas. It’s magic, when it’s needed most.
You can help spread the word
We’d love you to join us in spreading the word about the BookTrust 2023 Christmas Appeal.
To help you we’ve created a social media toolkit which includes ideas for social media posts and images you can use.
Help more children wake up to the magic of books this Christmas.
This year we hope to deliver 17,000 festive book parcels, reaching more children than ever before. But we can’t do it without you. Will you help?
