Make space on your shelves for exciting new books and raise money for blind children to have new Touch to See books!
Do you have books at home that you have already read? Ask your teacher if you can have a book sale – maybe in the playground after school or during lunch break? Or if you go to an after school club, maybe the leader would let you have a sale at the end of the meeting? Encourage all your friends to bring in books they’ve already read. Pick a day for your #BooksforBooks sale and let everyone know all about it!
You will need:
Lots of books in good condition
A pot to collect the money
A friend to help you run the stall
Paper and sticky tape
Decide on pricing – we suggest 50p or £1 each
Make a big sign with the price to stick to the front of the table. You could make some extra signs for school notice boards and classrooms
Arrange the books on the table and you’re ready for customers!
Donate the money from your #BooksforBooks sale to Living Paintings so we can make new Touch to See Books for blind children
