  1. Feed The Children, IN
    (Feed the Children is one of our major donation partners for Book for Book™.)
  2. WNIT Public TV
  3. Feed The Children, OK
  4. Christian Resource International, MI
  5. Books Between Kids, TX
    (You might remember Books Between Kids from a huge donation project last March in which we sent an 18-wheeler full of books to be given away to kids in low-income neighborhoods.)
  6. Charter School of the Dunes, IN
  7. Hamilton School, IN
  8. Brunswick Literacy Council, NC
  9. Truck Pull event—South Bend, IN
    (We participated in an event in which attendees filled a tote bag full of books to take home. At the end of the day, we had nothing left but empty boxes—what a great feeling!)
  10. Kaiser Foundation of Salem, OR

As you may already know, we donate a book to a nonprofit organization for every used book purchased from BetterWorldBooks.com—that’s the Book for Book™ promise. Thanks to your support, we hope to break this record again in the future… and again, and again.
