In researching ways for Eastfield’s chapter of Sigma Kappa Delta to serve not only its local community (the school, the city) but also the global community on a meaningful level (while still keeping to its mission as an English Honor Society), I discovered Better World Books.
It was as if a light bulb suddenly popped out of thin air. “Ah!”
The beauty of it is that the campus student organization (like, say SKD) doing the book drive gets paid for the books Better World Books accepts — and those books, in turn, BWB sells and donates a large part of the proceeds to international and national non-profit literacy programs.
And like all really good programs like this, it all started with a simple idea.
As for me, I’ll see if I can find books on Better World Books. And, oh yes, have SKD members run a BWB book drive or two next year! 🙂
