This is a bookstore now dear to my heart. Better World Books! Read on and learn how you can be Santa every day by just buying something you already buy. A book!
What was this green bin? It was a book donation bin, yet on the other side, it said you could buy books at their web address?
After coming home, I researched this company, and am convinced this is one awesome book seller! Better World Books accepts donations of your used books, resells them, and uses a portion of the profits to fund literacy programs around the world (and maybe some in your own neighborhood). Here's a few of the wonderful organizations they support:
- National Center for Family Literacy
- Books for Africa
- Invisible Children
- Room to Read
- Open Books
- The Robinson Bend Community Center
- The Prison Book Program
This wonderful company has started a campaign called Book for Book, which is truly amazing! If you buy a book from Better World Books, they in turn, donate a book to someone in need. What a beautiful message for the holiday season. Give the gift of reading, and check this company out.
By the way, they sell both new and used books!
Give those you love the gift of reading and literacy. It can change the world!
