How Our Giving Works
Every six months, we total the number of books that were sold across all channels (direct sales, trade stores, specialty accounts, e-commerce—everything!) Every book counts.
Ship to Partners
We ship an equal number of books to our literacy partners. Sometimes, we'll print books specially formatted for this purpose. Other times, we'll pull from our Bushel & Peck inventory.
Our distribution partners will ship the books they receive to their respective areas of work. From Africa to inner city schools in the U.S. to refugee camps halfway across the world, books will find their way into the hands of kids that need them most.
All the books we send are brand new—in most cases, they're still packaged in the box. Some donations will include books that were returned by retailers, but we're sure to only picks ones that are in excellent shape. Most of our donated books are paperbacks—they're lightweight to ship, can fit more in a box, and are cheaper to print, all of which means more books for every child.
We consolidate shipments to keep our shipping costs as low as possible. It also allows us to send our books in case quantities instead of as individual books. In most cases, this is easier for our partners to handle.
We look for impressive, registered non-profits expanding the accessibility of books to the world's kids. Some work with cities in the United States while others work with developing countries throughout the world. We're proud to offer beautiful Bushel & Peck books to their commendable efforts.
Yes! For every book we sell, whether it's through a bookstore, an online retailer, a gift store, a museum shop, a gas station, a Target, or directly from us (you get the idea), we match it with a book donated to a child in need.
