It is wonderful when businesses show their corporate responsibility by helping with charitable donations, financial or in kind but our Director was bowled over when Awesome Book asked if they could donate 80,000 books to our campaign and pay for the shipment. Nat Perez, Chair of Community H.E.A.R.T. and has probably packed and sorted more than a couple of million books was also amazed by this generous gift. “People are not aware that although it only costs us around 20 pence per book, there is a lot of volunteer time in sorting and packing, costs of transport and storage in the UK. This gift means we can send over 80,000 books quite quickly and not worry about where we can get the money for storage and shipping”
