Shop and Support Literacy, Too

donate to literacyOne of my favorite things to do during the holidays is shop for books. Yes, I like browsing the bookstore (and library!) shelves all year long. At Christmas, though, I wear a different hat. Instead of looking for books that I will like, I wander through the aisles in search of books that are “just right” for the person on my gift list.

  • Laugh-out loud books for the preschoolers
  • Thrillers for the mystery lover
  • Biographies for the history lover
  • Cookbooks for the FoodNetwork addictees

Sadly, not everyone loves books or reading or Amazon.com. Thankfully, I have an alternative. I can shop for gifts at their favorite stores AND support my literacy passion.

Shop = Gift + Literacy

Best of all, you can do it too! For the past several years, I have done my holiday shopping through Goodshop.com

shop for holiday gifts and give back, too

Here’s a little secret – Goodshop has C-O-U-P-O-N-S at many of the participating 2,500 retailers. [Crate & Barrel coupons anyone?]

I save on the holiday purchases when I shop for my in-laws (shhh!), and Crate & Barrel puts a percentage of the purchase to the charity of my choice – The Reading Tub!

A win-win-win this holiday! Lots of people will be asking for donations this holiday. Goodshop.com offers you a way to shop for gifts AND donate to a cause you’re passionate about … without stressing you or your budget.
