What Is Bookworm Builders?

Bookworm Builders is a philanthropic activity available anywhere in North America, any time, and for any group size. In this activity, teams build and customize bookshelves for children in your community, share a special bonding experience, and get to have fun with their creativity.

Here's how it works...

  1. 1
    Split into teams to build and customize children’s bookshelves for your community
  2. 2
    Showcase your work by presenting your creations to the rest of the group
  3. 3
    Make a difference by donating all the bookshelves to a local charity organization
The fact that this activity makes a charitable donation says it all! Your team was amazing and flexible with us. You went above and beyond to prepare this event, so it truly fit our needs.

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
