Binc 2017 Impact Report Now Available

So many people in the book community came together in an extraordinary way in 2017, changing the lives of more booksellers than ever before. The stories of who our donors helped is powerful, however, we think you will be as impressed with the numbers from last year because they illustrate a very important point:

No bookseller was turned away!

Our donors gave us the resources to help every bookseller who turned to us with a need last year – Book people who suffered from serious medical conditions, faced unexpected injuries and accidents, and found themselves seeking new housing.

Generous book lovers, store owners, booksellers and other industry professionals helped book people from frozen Minnesota to storm-ravaged Texas, after the east coast hurricanes and the west coast wildfires and everywhere in between – booksellers from across the country who lost their homes, vehicles and all their belongings.

 

Please help Binc reach the booksellers who may need help by linking them to our website or encouraging them to contact us at (866) 733-9064 or help@bincfoundation.org
