It’s brilliantly simple: Every time you buy from Good Books, 100% of the e-tail profit goes directly to fund charitable projects in partnership with Oxfam.
Our aim is to create beneficial and enduring connections between commercial worlds like ours and wider, less advantaged communities. So all our time, professional services and resources are donated. No one at Good Books is paid and we have zero operating costs.
And now, by harnessing the power of Amazon’s enormous back end, we’re able to offer even more. Choose from CDs, DVDs, audio books, Blu-Ray, vinyl, watches, pup tents, vitamins, lawn furniture – these days Amazon sells just about everything. You can use your existing Amazon account, we just ask you go through the Good Books site - as the poor benefit from your choices. Another significant benefit is Amazon’s robust cyber-defenses. Web chicanery has made it more challenging to be an online retailer and the Amazon model significantly lessens Good Books’ exposure to this.
Delivery is still worldwide and all Good Books’ profit will continue to go directly to Oxfam. Once you’ve made your pick from the largest catalogue of stuff in the world, your choices will be confirmed by Amazon and your packages of delight will arrive in Amazon livery in a timely fashion befitting an international logistics superpower. Good Books will always be committed to fighting inequality. When you buy, you’re actively and directly supporting communities in need – you’re part of the team. We hope we can count on your continued support. Thank you.
The Good Books Team
Any money made by Good Books funds projects that provide clean water, sanitation, develop sustainable agriculture and create access to education in developing countries. The money goes directly to the project and the projects are community led.
So far - with the support of really cool people like you - we have funded projects in Tanzania, East Timor, The Solomons, Fiji, and Papua New Guinea. Have a look at the different projects here.
