I was taught a long time ago that helping those less fortunate is something which benefits everyone, Mr. Der
San Leandro, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2013
Internet textbook buyback site, MyBookbuyer, a leading online book buying business based in Northern California, announced they are seeking to help a local school or non-profit charitable cause with a donation of 1,000 children’s books. This online book site has been in the book buying business for more than a decade and during this time, the company has consistently been committed to supporting worthy causes in need. In the past, thousands of books have been donated to Resource Area for Teaching (RAFT), an organization committed to obtaining and distributing hand-on materials for educators with need, routinely throughout the years. In addition, they have formed alliances with Goodwill Industries, Hope Foundation and the Salvation Army, continuing their dedication to help those less fortunate.
MyBookBuyer.com has an objective of extending an invitation to a locally based organization that works with low income and financially disadvantaged children who will benefit by obtaining these reading resources that they would otherwise go without. “I was taught a long time ago that helping those less fortunate is something which benefits everyone, and it has long since been a passion of mine, says MyBookBuyer founder Mr. Michael Der.” “To help promote literacy and education is something that is very near and dear to me and being in the book business this long, I have witnessed that beautiful and special things happen when you pair children with books.”
The donation will include a variety of 1,000 children’s picture books, readers and chapter books. The classification of books congregated and donated can be catered specifically to the needs of the organization, with varying reading levels and interests. The library donation can range from learning to read beginner Readers and Picture books, those geared for the very early readers ages 4 and older, or extending right up to advanced reading chapter books with Reading Levels up to RL 5, intended mostly for ages from 9 to 12. Popular Scholastic series titles to choose from, many of which continue to be read and taught in classrooms, can include Magic Tree House, Goosebumps, Harry Potter, Captain Underpants, Magic School Bus, and many other popular series titles.
The donated books will be quality used items, some with common signs of previous ownership such as written names or stickers, common with gently read children’s books. The company will inspect the books beforehand to ensure they are clean reading copies and many selected will be excellent or like new. According to leading literacy source DoSomething.Org, the Country’s largest not for profit organization assisting young people for social change, two-thirds of students who cannot read proficiently by the time they’ve completed their 4th grade education, will likely have a dismal future, which often leads to Jail or a destitute life on Welfare. Another troubling statistic shows that 1 out of every 4 children in the United States actually grow up without ever having learned to read. Whether it’s the new technology which competes for their attention, or monetary barriers and financial resources which are often lacking, many of today’s children no longer read books. MyBookBuyer believes that helping children focus on their available educational opportunities can inspire them to have positive goals which are achievable and sustainable. The company hopes that this donation of 1,000 children’s books can be a resource to help aid an organization to accomplish this.
