Flubit, a website which tries to offer customers a better price for products on Amazon, is supporting the National Literacy Trust throughout August, its ‘Book Month’.
Flubit is asking book lovers nationwide to send book reviews to appear on its blog.
In return, the company will donate £10 to the National Literacy Trust and give the reviewer a free book of their choice. Flubit will also donate £1 for every ‘micro review’ posted on Twitter with the hashtag #flubitbooks, and the tweets will be entered into a weekly prize draw to win a free book of the winner’s choice up to the value of £10.
Flubit’s c.e.o., Bertie Stephens, said: We absolutely love books here at Flubit so the idea of a Book Month made perfect sense to us. We want to get the nation reading more and it’s great that we can support and raise money for a fantastic cause at the same time. The National Literacy Trust do some amazing work and make a huge difference to thousands of people’s lives across the UK, so we’re delighted to be able to help in our own small way.”
Anna Jones, development manager at the National Literacy Trust, added: "It’s wonderful that Flubit have chosen to raise money for us in this way. Anything that raises awareness of the importance of literacy and encourages reading for pleasure is very worthwhile. The Book Month campaign is a great way of achieving this and will provide vital support for the National Literacy Trust’s work in improving literacy in disadvantaged communities“.
Book reviews can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org and more information about the initiative can be found at www.flubit.com/books.
