10% of all sales go to teachers that need books for their classroom libraries. We work with 100s of teachers nationwide to find books for their classroom. Literacy projects are a passion for me as I am a school librarian. I believe reading increases empathy, passion, and creativity in all people and especially children. School teachers rarely get funding for classroom libraries if at all, and yet are expected to teach with updated literary resources each year. Most classroom teachers spend over $500 a year on their own classrooms with their own money. As a classroom teacher there were times I spent $2000 or $3000 in a single school year on my classroom.
We are also hoping to work with teacher artists to bring new products to the store. If you are a teacher and would like to submit digital artwork, get paid, and also support the #ClearTheBooks movement, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Or you can pick a book project off of our giving page on DonorsChoose and donate as little as $1 to a project in need. Click Here.

NerdSale is a collaborative sale I throw each month to help both small shops in the online bookstagram community as well as to raise money for literacy in schools. Shops pick whatever portion they want to give back from the sale and donate it however they want to. If you are a small shop, please feel free to fill out the form to join our upcoming sales by clicking here.
