Greta Thunberg's Book of Speeches to 100 Schools

Total raised £13,195

raised so far



We want to get 10 copies of "Nobody is Too Small to Make a Difference" by the amazing Greta Thunberg into 100 different UK schools.

 New stretch target

If we reach more than our original target, then the money will be used to supply even more schools, so please don't stop donating!

In August 2018 a fifteen-year-old Swedish girl, Greta Thunberg, decided not to go to school one day. Her actions sparked a global movement for action against the climate crisis, inspiring millions of pupils to go on strike for our planet, forcing governments to listen, and earning her a Nobel Peace Prize nomination.

 A collection of her speeches has now been published by Penguin, called ‘No One Is Too Small to Make A Difference’. And the title of the book sums up why we think this book is so important. Not only is it a rallying cry for why we must all wake up and fight to protect the living planet, but it’s also an inspirational book with the potential to empower future generations by showing them that no matter who you are, you really can make a difference.

 Melissa Harrison tweeted this recently, and it gave us an idea:


We’d like to get as many copies of Greta’s book as we can into the hands of young people. So, this is why we’re setting up this Crowdfunder.

 The aim is to supply 100 schools from across the UK with 10 copies each of the book.

Those of you with a penchant for maths will have worked out that this means we’ll need 1,000 copies of the book. The book’s £2.99, so we’re looking to raise around £3,000.

 Can you buy a copy of Greta’s book for a schoolchild? Better still, can you buy three? Five? More?

 With Crowdfunder, we have to achieve our target or no money is taken from our supporters and the project will not be funded. But if we over achieve, then we’ll be able to look at giving copies to even more children.

 If you’d like your school to be considered to receive copies, send an email to [email protected] with the name of the school, its address and a contact name.

 Thanks for taking the time to read this. We really hope you can help!
