In honor of our ‘10, $10, in 10‘ campaign, Books Inc. on Chestnut Street in the Marina of San Francisco has graciously decided to participate in our month long campaign!
Starting today, if you purchase any of the 10 books from a list that we, Books Inc. and OWCF, have meticulously chosen, 15% of the proceeds will be donated back to OWCF’s projects. We believe these books will bring more of an understanding and awareness to what children face everyday in their own country.
Books chosen for the month of October are:
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
I Am Nujood by Nujood Ali
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
Say You’re One Of Them by Uwen Akpan
A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah
Half The Sky by Nicholas D. Kristof
Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts
Undaunted: My Struggle for Freedom and Survival in Burma by Zoya Phan
*We have projects in all the countries that are featured in in these books.
