It is with great pleasure that we announce the kick-off of the 2016 Books for Schools Donation Campaign!
Each year PaperBackSwap, through our generous members, donates brand-new books to needy elementary schools across the country. The goal of the program is to provide children with books that they can read for pleasure. Most of us learned the love of reading at an early age, and this is a great opportunity to share that joy. Over the past years PaperBackSwap and our members have donated over 101,000 new books to elementary schools!
You can make a donation of credits or PaperBackSwap Money (which will be used to defray some of the shipping costs), find more information about the schools and the program, see thank-you notes from past years' schools, and suggest schools in need by going to the donations page.
Thank you all for joining us in making a real difference in the education of these kids!
To donate credits to Books for Schools year-round (between active Books for Schools campaigns), you can donate to the BooksForSchoolsCredits account. When the next BFS program is underway, those donated credits will be applied to the schools in that year's roster. To donate: click this link and when on that page, you can use the Give Credits button on the profile to transfer credits to that account. Thank you for your generosity! The kids really appreciate the books.
If you know of an elementary school in need, suggest it here and we will consider it for our next Books for School donation drive.
