November is National Family Literacy Month, and while your child may have a ton of books he/she can read (I know mine do, and I am thankful!) many children may not have the opportunity to experience the magic of books. Zulily wants to help, and for the month of November they have teamed up with publisher Penguin Random House and nonprofit First Book to help provide books to children in need all across the United States. What better time to form such an alliance, as it is the season of giving?!
The event runs November 1 - December 12, 2018. Special sales will be launched during the campaign and will feature a curated selection of children's books. Every book that also has the "BUY 1, GIVE 1" badge will trigger a new children's book donation, up to 100,000 books from Penguin Random House to First Book.
In addition to that, there will be various times when shoppers can visit Zulily's social media channels and engage with comments and likes to help spark the 'Buy One Give One Campaign.'
So many of the books that have the 'Buy 1, Give 1' badge are available, that you are sure to find one or more that you would love to have and simultaneously gift to another child as well. Classic favorites like Corduroy, Dr. Suess, and Sesame Street are on there. So are newer favorites like My Little Pony (oh my goodness, how my granddaughter loves those books!). Sales are continuously running, so be sure to check out the Zulily website and see what might have currently gone on sale at the moment...but you have to hurry (and check back often) because each sale only runs a limited amount of time.
This is the kind of initiative that I can really get behind and support. Having fostered a love of reading in all 4 of my children, since they were very little, I understand the importance and impact that kind of gift can have on their life. If you appreciate companies showing this kind of support as well, head on over to the Zulily website. Take a look at what they have to offer, and don't forget to visit their social media sites periodically as well. Surely a child will thank you, whether you know it or not...and that's always the best kind of giving.
