Book Culture’s Give Back Program

December 19, 2008 at 12:31 pm Leave a comment

We’ve started a Give Back Program to benefit schools and non-profits in the neighborhood. It’s easy – organizations/schools join up with us, create an account and then let their members/parents know that shopping at Book Culture benefits their group. Each time a customer designates (at the register, via phone, or on our website) that their purchases should go to support a certain school, Book Culture will donate 15% of sales from each purchase.

Five schools have already joined, and earlier this week we held a special “Give Back Shopping Night” for one of the schools. Members of faculty and staff, as well as parents and students, from Bard High School Early College came to shop during a special three hour period. There were refreshments, door prizes and readings from both a student, Molly Wyrick-Flaxe, and a parent, the author Andre Aciman. See photos of the event here.

Contact Chris Doeblin (chris@bookculture.com) if you are interested in signing up your school for the program.
