We're proud to announce our new charity donor tool:
Round Up For Reading
Sometimes a big change only needs small change.
We're changing the face of social responsibility in our industry with the launch of our charity donor tool, Round Up For Reading. The new feature to our online checkout, Round Up For Reading provides you, the customer, with a choice of literacy charities to which you can optionally donate by rounding up your purchase.
The Round Up For Reading program is powered through a partnership between Biblio and Beanstalk Giving.
Currently, the Round Up For Reading tool offers customers the chance to donate to one of three charities: Biblioworks, READ Alliance or Room To Read.
BiblioWorks' primary program is building and funding libraries in impoverished communities in South America.
Room To Read
Room To Read provides literacy access to primary- and secondary-school children through a variety of programs focused in Asia and Africa.
READ Alliance serves at-risk kindergarten and first grade children by recruiting and training teens to provide structured one-to-one tutoring in reading.
How does the Round Up For Reading Tool work?
It's easy to use and takes less than 30 seconds! The tool is located below your total in your Cart. Before proceeding to checkout, you have the option to select one of three literacy charities, and a choice of three rounding amounts. Select one charity, and one rounding amount, then proceed through checkout as normal.
Can I go back and change my round-up amount?
Yes, you can go all the way back to the cart to change your round-up amount as long as you make this change BEFORE submitting your order.
I'm not located in the United States. Does this tool work with my country's currency?
Yes, it does, in the way described above. If you have any problems with your round-up donation in your cart, please contact our support team at: email@example.com.
Can I make a larger donation or donate a different amount?
You can make a direct donation of a larger or different amount by visiting the charity's website. Use the links above to access those websites.
