London (PRWEB UK) 7 August 2014
Online shopping service Flubit.com has just launched its inaugural ‘Book Month’ to celebrate books whilst also supporting the National Literacy Trust.
The Book Month is taking place throughout August and Flubit is asking book lovers nationwide to submit their very own reviews to appear on the Flubit blog. For every book review (200 words minimum) sent to books(at)flubit(dot)com they will donate £10 to the National Literacy and give the reviewer a book of their choice to say thank you.
Bertie Stephens CEO and Founder of Flubit 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.”
For those that prefer to Tweet than Blog, Flubit will also donate a £1 for every ‘micro review’ using hashtag #flubitbooks. Each micro review Tweet will be entered into a weekly prize draw.
The initiative will not only raise much needed funds for the National Literacy Trust but will also help to raise awareness of the charity’s work and help them to deliver their aim of raising literacy levels in the UK.
Anna Jones, Development Manager at the National Literacy Trust, said, "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 books(at)flubit(dot)com and more information about the initiative can be found at http://www.flubit.com/books.
