The Book Industry Charitable Foundation (Binc) turns 25 this year, and AdventureKEEN is happy to celebrate with them!
While the recognition and applause have been going on all year, the official event kicks off virtually on August 12th at 8 p.m. EST. We’re excited to be on the list of Honorary Hosts.
Binc supports indie bookstores in their times of need. This wonderful organization has been a help to thousands of booksellers following hardships and emergencies such as illnesses, natural disasters, and, most recently, COVID health scares and the challenges of wading through an economy in lockdown.
AdventureKEEN is proud of the work that Binc does, and we’re happy to support the foundation through our Shop Local Live Local campaign. To join the Shop Local Live Local program, all bookstores have to do is enroll. That’s it. AdventureKEEN tracks all of the purchasing and sales of AdventureKEEN books through each participating store, and at the end of the year a certain percentage of sales is donated to Binc. Binc then donates that money to shop owners who need financial support to get through all kinds of personal and professional situations. All of this is made possible through the systems put in place by folks at PGW, Binc, and AdventureKEEN. It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we work together.
Hopefully, you’re beginning to see why Binc is such a big deal and why it’s worth celebrating. If Binc’s resume isn’t enough for you, check out the full roster of authors and creators (including Celeste Ng, Ann Patchett, Jason Reynolds, and Isaac Fitzgerald, just to name a few) that will be on-screen during the live event.
So get your tickets to attend the Binc 25th Anniversary Celebration, or register to be an Honorary Host. There will be lots to see and celebrate on August 12th!
