Bookseller Stories

Thanks to You, Binc Can Provide Critical, Timely Assistance

Thank you for your support! It will ensure that needed medical attention is given as more and more patients receive surprising financial news, even after careful advance planning to cover out of pocket expenses.

Thank You for Being a Helper

People walking up a mountain and offering a helping hand

Thank you for being a helper. Thank you for taking out the stress, uncertainty and fear when book and comic employees face unexpected crises. Your donations and advocacy change lives.

You Are Helping Us Provide Mental Health Support

A report from the American Psychological Association showed that the pandemic has heightened the impact of chronic prolonged stress for people from all walks of life, and is especially linked to anxiety, depression, anger, sleep difficulties, eating disorders. You know that if you read about it in the news, then Binc is there for employees and owners of bookstores and comic shops who are experiencing it.

You Reminded a Bookseller That They Are Not Alone

It starts with something small. A late payment. An unexpected expense. Then it snowballs and suddenly a bookseller is living in a dark and cold apartment with no heat, light, or running water. Thanks to you, a grant from Binc allowed them to get the water and electricity reconnected bringing light, warmth, and hope back into their home.

Community Comes Together for a Bookseller

This bookseller was able to use two Binc programs – matching grants and the emergency financial assistance program. Your support allowed Binc to match what the bookseller’s local community raised, and provided enough additional assistance to pay for their travel expenses, and also the cremation and burial for their loved one.
