An independent bookshop is using Twitter to buy books for homeless people.
Big Green Bookshop have followed up their novel #buyastrangerabook initiative with #buyShelterabook this Christmas.
Twitter is not known for being the merriest place on Earth at the moment, even at the so-called ‘most wonderful time of the year’, but an independent bookshop owner is changing that while helping homeless people access books.
Simon Key of the Big Green Bookshop in Wood Green has already highlighted the power of social media with their popular #buyastrangerabook initiative which asked Twitter users to pay forward for a book to be given to a stranger.
Now, Simon has unveiled a new version of the social media project with #buyShelterabook, this time asking customers to pledge to buy a book for homelessness charity Shelter.

The world centre of luxury men’s clothes will host the week of events to raise funds for Crisis.
Bespoke tailoring hotspot Savile Row is sending out A Call to Garms with a pop-up shop selling luxury menswear to benefit homeless people.
In support of national homelessness charity Crisis, the store will open on December 10-15 at 31 Savile Row in Mayfair, central London. The pop-up will follow that launched by Kate Bush where remastered versions of her 40-year back catalogue will be on sale, also for Crisis.
As well as the must-visit shop, a programme of events and appearances has been arranged including a closing party headlined by David Gray.
Julian Stocks, chief executive of building owner The Pollen Estate, said: “Savile Row is the world’s finest street for bespoke tailoring and we are thrilled to be working with Tom Stubbs and Crisis on the world’s most sartorial charity pop-up.
