WHAT IS SHELTERBOX BOOK CLUB?


Introducing ShelterBox Book Club – a unique community membership designed for Australians who share the love of a quality read.

Each member can vote on the next book – a shortlist of 3 books carefully selected by our Head Bookworm, who is always on the lookout for compelling stories from around the world and strong characters with depth.

Join the ShelterBox Book Club community today with a monthly payment to ShelterBox, and you can look forward to diving your eyes into a new, exciting book every 6 weeks. Read along at your own pace and join the discussion online, via our private Facebook group.

And with every story you read, you’ll be transforming the lives of disaster-hit families around the world.

CHANGE LIVES WITH EVERY PAGE


Your membership will be helping families like Khadija's, who had to leave everything behind in Nigeria and flee Boko Haram. The family were provided with sturdy materials to build a new shelter, and feel safe again.

ShelterBox is no ordinary charity. We believe that every family has the right to a shelter they can call home. No ifs. No buts.

Join our extraordinary Book Club today and you’ll be helping reach even more families hit by disaster or emergency.

In 2018 alone, thanks to our supporters we helped over 210,000 people all over the world affected by conflict and natural disasters. See how we’ve helped people recover.

Your support will help provide vital ShelterBoxes and ShelterKits with emergency essentials, like tents, water filters and solar lights. Find out more about our aid.

Whenever disaster strikes – whether it’s a hurricane, floods or severe drought – your love of a good book will help create real-life stories with a happier ending.
