During the Stay Home Reading Rush we sold limited edition bookmarks and have now donated 50% of the profit generated to independent bookshops! We spent a long time trying to figure out the best way to make this money count. Originally we wanted to donate it to a foundation that supports independent bookshops but after news reports that people like Reese Witherspoon were donating millions of dollars to those foundations we wondered if there was a way to support bookshops in a more direct way. In the end we decided to split the $800 raised between three bookshops: Expressions of Time, Iron Dog Books, and Massy Books! These are all amazing bookshops that do so much for the community and we were so excited to help them out in our little way!
Thank you so much to everyone who bought bookmarks back in April for making this lovely moment possible!
