We measure the success of our project in two ways: the efficiency of delivery and the responses of the recipients. From a cost basis, we are shipping books for less than 20 cents a piece. At our books sales, these same books are sold for $1 or more each and are worth considerably more to the recipients. At a minimum, we are sending $20,000 worth of books for $5000 or less. Similar books projects charge two and three times our cost to send books. The response from the recipients has been heartwarming. They indicate that our collection and sorting process works. We ask each recipient to provide a distribution plan and to report back on their efforts.
TO DATE, WE HAVE SENT 8.7 MILLION BOOKS TO OVER 30 COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD!
