Books for International Goodwill is always looking for recipients who can effectively handle a shipment of 20,000 books in a container.
We sort books for condition and into broad categories
Our storage and supply chain constraints require sending mixed shipments. We can generally guarantee 30% in one category. We encourage recipients to develop distribution procedures for the books they can not use. A number of our recipients simply place all books into a large area (gymnasium, dining hall, etc.) and invite local schools and libraries in to pick what they want. It is a nice community service.
While we prefer to ship directly to a Rotary Club for distribution, we will work with an established school, library or social welfare agency. We ask the recipient to:
We expect a minimum of $500 toward shipping up front.
The lead time for a large shipment is approximately 3 months
Past shipments include: The Gambia, Nigeria, Kenya, Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, and many others!
WE WILL SHIP INSIDE THE UNITED STATES AS WELL!
