From the website of Gone Reading...
Dear Fellow Book Lovers:If you’re like me, you just can’t imagine living in a world without reading. Unfortunately, for almost a billion people today, that’s exactly where they find themselves. There are countless villages, towns and vast regions of this planet where the power of reading has yet to shine its light.
Gone Reading International, LLC was founded to bring the magic effect of reading to places where it doesn’t exist. We believe that when people have open access to great reading materials, life always changes for the better. When libraries and reading materials are made available, entire villages, communities and their citizens achieve unprecedented levels of self-sufficiency.
That’s why Gone Reading International has pledged 100% of company profits to fund new reading libraries and other literacy projects in the developing world. By purchasing our gifts for readers, you’re changing the world while treating yourself and the bibliophiles in your life to a great gift.
We’re working with great non-profits such as READ Global and Ethiopia Reads, amazing organizations with proven models, long track records, and dedicated teams on the ground. Such groups partner with local villages and communities in the most underdeveloped parts of the world to effect real change. Our goal is to provide significant financial assistance to such organizations, allowing them to achieve greater scale and impact.
Purchase Our Gifts for ReadersWe invite you to join the GoneReading family by making a purchase of our gifts for readers, and equally important, sharing our story with the book lovers, bibliophiles and readers in your life!
