Since our launch in January, it has been our 2010 goal to send an entire container full of books to Africa through our charity partner Books For Africa. We are proud to announce that we met that goal!
In October 2010, three months ahead of schedule, Out of Print fully sponsored and sent a 40-foot sea container (560 boxes, over 20,000 books) of donated text and library books to be distributed to schools and libraries in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The container is expected to arrive in November 2010 and we will keep you posted on future developments.
Thank you for your love of books and willingness to purchase a shirt and spread your joy of reading!
