Spread the Words!
Hey guys! Just wanted to update you all on a cool new program! Take a look!
BookRenter, a San Mateo, CA based start-up growing at a startling 725% per year, rents textbooks to college students at a fraction of the price (according to the website, they’ll save students 75% off the full-retail price). But with all the chatter this year about textbook rental, that fact may not come as a surprise to you.
Perhaps more noteworthy is that the company also has a charitable side – BookRenter Gives Back. Currently BookRenter is a running a holiday book drive of sorts via its e-card giving campaign “Spread the Words”. For every e-card that is sent from http://ecard.bookrenter.com, BookRenter makes a donation to First Book, a non-profit that provides new book donations to children’s schools and organizations. First Book ensures that these books get in the hands of the kids who need them most – students like those of KIPP Comienza Community Prep.
If you’re reading this you basically have no excuse not to send an e-card. They’re cute, they help out helpless children, and everyone likes receiving cards – even virtual ones. These e-cards are especially special because BookRenter seems to have enlisted the help of Olive the Reindeer from Chronicle Books Olive is a cheerful flightless reindeer of which I have some fond childhood memories.
OK, now go send those e-cards!
