Saving & Shopping for a Cause

From :

First Book is a national nonprofit organization that gives children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books. In neighborhoods across the country, First Book Advisory Boards unite leaders from all sectors of the community to identify the most effective community-based literacy programs reaching children living at or below the poverty line and provide them with First Book grants of free books and educational materials. First Book has distributed more than 43 million new books to children in need in hundreds of communities nationwide.

Just $25 spent on back-to-school shopping, a couple of great beach reads, or the latest CD or DVD release will help get one economically disadvantaged child their very own, and perhaps very first, new book. So bring your shopping lists - and this coupon (PDF format) - to your local Borders store August 26-27. Borders will donate 10% of the proceeds from your purchases to First Book, who will use those funds to provide new books for children nationwide. You will benefit not only from the 10% taken off your purchase, but from the knowledge that you personally are giving children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books.
