We Practice Charity: The Recipient

Open Books Hi Res LogoAt Book Riot, we’ve built charity into our DNA. We donate 2% of all revenue to charity–no funny math, just total revenue x .02–and we invite our community to participate. Earlier this year, we asked you to nominate and vote on your favorite organizations to be our 2013 charitable partner.

We are thrilled to announce today that Open Books won the vote and will be receiving our donation of 2% of all 2014 revenue. We’ll also be finding other creative ways to work with them throughout the year and to share their work with you. Check out the info below, and visit their website to donate and get involved.

Open Books is a nonprofit social venture that provides literacy experiences for tens of thousands of readers each year through inspiring programs and creative capitalization of books. Our literacy programs are designed to spark creativity, inspiration, and independence. Annually, we serve over 5,000 K-12 students through innovative instruction, including one-on-one reading with struggling elementary school students and creative writing workshops for middle and high school students. We also help build libraries in classrooms and at nonprofits citywide. In 2014 alone, we will provide more than 100,000 engaging, appropriate, and high-quality books to readers of all ages through our book grant programs.
