How we give: The Book-for-Book Promise
For every book we sell, we donate one to a child in need. Book for book. Child for child. It's our promise.
How our giving works:
Every year, 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, who include teachers, librarians, nonprofits, and literacy foundations. Usually, we print books specially formatted for this purpose. Other times, we pull from our Bushel & Peck inventory.
Some of our partners, like teachers and librarians, hand out books to individual students and families that they know need books most. Larger partners ship books to centers around the world where they are needed most.

Teachers & Librarians
If you work with underprivileged kids, or if your school or library is facing critical funding issues, we'd love to provide some books.
If you run a local bookstore, we know you're at the heart of literacy in your community. Learn how retailers can become our giving partners.
Whether you're a shelter for kids or a local food bank, you're on the front lines providing care to communities in need. We'd love to help you make books part of your offerings!
