Sell everyone's pre-loved books at work and aid literacy

The pick of the fundraising tips for the Biggest Book Fair has to be, "ask for donations from your staff to encourage the CEO or big boss to read from a chosen book on the day of your event".  Getting your boss to cooperate in reading Fifty Shades of Grey might be the only challenge.

Biggest Book Fair is on Thursday, September 20 and is described as a chance to "share the joy of reading and raise money to help teach disadvantaged Australians how to read and write".

The main idea is to for work colleagues to pool all their pre-loved books and then sell them on the day, alongside ideas such as getting your boss to read something stirring, or embarrassing.

Organisers can register to receive a fundraising pack with money to The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF).

ALNF is dedicated to raising language, literacy and numeracy standards in Australia and raises funds to develop, implement and sustain innovative projects for individuals, families and communities.
