After brokering new and used textbooks for years, Yosef Lifchitz saw how textbooks were only used for a year or two and then discarded for later editions. “There were so many used textbooks with little edition-by-edition changes,” Yosef says. “Yet there was no easily visible market for these barely-cracked textbooks. I knew I had to change that.”
By donating gentle used books to Books4Cause.com, donors create opportunities to help people in need. Book donations to Books4Cause.com have helped create a free bookstore in Skokie, Illinois. Campus book drives have sent textbooks to developing libraries and education programs in Africa. Soon, donated books could help Books4Cause, Inc. open a free bookstore that serves Chicago’s South Side.
So far, book donations have created twenty libraries in Africa and kept more than 500K books out of landfills. Discover where to donate books to Books4Cause.com.
As Books4Cause.com expands, additional campus book drives will soon be added. In the meantime, Yosef adds, “If you’re near Chicago or in the NY/NJ regions, we’ll even pick up your books.”
