Take part in the challenge in five easy steps!

1. Register

Choose a date and register! If you want help selecting a date, consider some of the options below:

  • Indigenous Literacy Day: Wednesday 6 September 2017
  • NAIDOC Week: 2-8 July 2017

  • National Literacy and Numeracy Week: August – September 2017 


2. Promote your event

Check your registration confirmation email for a link to your personalised fundraising page – supporters can make a donation directly to your page before the event! You can share this link with your family and friends, on social media, with your local newspaper or place in your school newsletter to build your funds.

You will also receive a Great Book Swap kit in the post that includes some posters to stick up at your school or workplace!

3. Gather the books

Set up a collection area for the book swap. Check your Great Book Swap kit for an information sheet, a donation and feedback form, bookplates to share with participants, stickers, brochures and posters. If you need any extra, you can download these from the link in your registration confirmation email.

4. Swap!

5. Submit your funds.

After your event, please submit your funds via the online link emailed to you in your registration confirmation. You can do so via credit card, EFT or cheque. It is important you donate via this link so we can ensure it is matched to the correct school, so you receive your Certificate of Appreciation at the end of the year and so you go into the draw to win an ambassador visit. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

We will use these funds to provide books to kids in remote communities. Thank you for your support!
