Wednesday 17 July
at the Secret Book Stuff shop!

We provide the snacks, you bring the good vibes!

Okay y'all... people are constantly asking us how they can get involved with Secret Book Stuff and help out and volunteer, so now is your chance. Instead of us wrapping books in front of Netflix until 1am, we'd love to do it alongside you in our very own bookshop!

We would LOVE your help wrapping books in recycled brown paper to gift as random acts of kindness to kids in remote and disadvantaged communities. We will take the books on our upcoming volunteer trip for Books4Outback!

There will be a grazing table of goodies and sweet tunes playing and you're welcome to drop in and help out for any amount of time between 5-8pm. Bring your kids, your friends, your puppies... all welcome and so appreciated!

Books 4 Outback is an amazing non-profit organisation here in Newcastle, and all us volunteers drive out to remote and disadvantaged communities to deliver books as random acts of kindness to kids and schools.

We've taken it one step further and run little kindness workshops with the kids in the schools - we get them to decorate a secret book with kind messages for a stranger, and then pass those books on to the next school. In return, we give them their own book to take home. It's an amazing cycle of bookish love.
