Choose books, change lives
• Support our Books for Asia Fund. Your monetary contribution to our Books for Asia Fund will support some of our most innovative projects and increase the number of books reaching areas affected by poverty and natural disaster in 19 countries. Any amount will help - $50 can provide a girls' secondary school in Afghanistan with a set of brand-new books; $200 can stock school libraries in northern Sri Lanka, an area debilitated by years of civil war.
• Organize a book drive or fundraiser. These are wonderful activities through which teachers, students, service clubs, and concerned individuals can share the love of books with those who need them most. To get started, download our book drive and fundraising kit.
If you would like to purchase books for your new book drive online, select a minimum of 25 books from the website below (please adhere to our minimum book donation policy) and the books will be sent directly to Books for Asia.
Please contact Wendy Rockett, (510) 667-6480, if you have any questions.
• Contribute to our Storytime in Asia Campaign. Help us get storybooks into the hands of the most underprivileged children. Your contribution can help transport books to under-resourced schools in some of the region's most hard-to-reach places.
