Okay, Bibilophiles. Test your knowledge. Did you know…
Women buy 68% of books purchased? Page 18 is where most readers lose interest? Don Quixote, The Prince, and Pilgrim’s Progress were all conceived or written behind bars? Dr. Seuss coined the word, “nerd” in 1950 in If I Ran the Zoo?
Here’s our favorite: Adults who read literature regularly are more than two-and-a-half times more likely to do volunteer or charity work compared to those who don’t read regularly. Go, readers!
When you create a Go Jane Give fundraising page you can turn your passion for books into a simple fundraiser for a cause you care about. Here are six ways to do it:
Host a book club. Members donate on your fundraising page to your cause in lieu of bringing food/drinks.
Offer donors your must-read book list. As a thank-you to friends who donate on your fundraising page, send your annotated list of favorite titles.
Organize a read-a-thon. Set a goal to read a certain number of books. Friends donate on your page in support of your cause.
Host a Q&A or book signing event with a local author. Use your fundraising page to advertise and collect donations for a night with a writer.
Organize a book drive for your cause. Collect books and sell them on your fundraising page. Proceeds go to the charity of your choice.
Host a book-themed party. Invite friends to your place and dress up as your favorite characters. Guests donate to your cause and RSVP on your fundraising page.
