It’s the holidays, a time when generosity fills the air. Not only do we want to show those special to us that we appreciate them, but we also want to support the many great nonprofits that build stronger communities and improve the lives of others throughout the year.
We can help you do both at the same time. Think of it as a BOGO of sorts: buy a gift and give to adult literacy.
2021 Adult Literacy Gift Guide
Visit the Penguin Hotline. Complete the Hotline’s brief questionnaire about yourself or your favorite book lover, and someone from Penguin Random House (or possibly a popular author) will send you a custom book recommendation. What’s cool is that for every consumer request that comes in to the Penguin Hotline through December 15, Penguin Publishing Group will donate $2, up to $10,000, to ProLiteracy!
Purchase Love in the Mix, a romance anthology cookbook. Romance authors Leslie Hachtel and Nikki Brock whipped up this anthology by pulling together recipes and the stories behind them from over 70 authors. online from major book retailers, it’s a great gift for the romance reader who also loves to cook. And all proceeds benefit ProLiteracy’s mission! Chew on that.
Order holiday cards from Good Cause Greetings. Send holiday cheer to your entire network. When you purchase literacy-themed cards, Good Cause Greetings will donate 10 percent of proceeds to ProLiteracy for the adult literacy cause, just as it has for over 20 years—totaling over $20,000!
Select ProLiteracy on AmazonSmile. Before you purchase that tablet, pair of sunglasses, or coffee maker, first choose ProLiteracy Worldwide (in Syracuse, New York) as your charity of choice on AmazonSmile. Shop for anything for anyone and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to ProLiteracy. Best part? You can do it from your couch.
Support literacy in honor of a teacher. Need a gift for your child’s teacher? Sure, you could give them another coffee shop gift card, but you know what they love more? Literacy. Make a donation to ProLiteracy in honor of your child’s teacher. When we teach a parent to read, we reach the child and give them a greater chance to succeed—and what teacher doesn’t love that?
