Frequently Asked Questions
Q. If I purchase more than one book at a time, will a book be donated to a child for every book I buy?
A. Yes, a book will be donated to a child for each book you purchase, even if you purchase several books at a time.
Q. How will you determine which children will receive the donated books?
A. To make the donations, our staff has partnered with nonprofit organizations in the black community, at home and abroad, to find children who do not have access to new books. At the end of every month, based on that month’s sales, we will check the donation tally to see how many books will be donated for that month. We will select an appropriate organization or community of children to receive a delivery of new books that have been chosen by the North Paran staff.
Q. How often will you donate books to children?
A. At the end of every month, based on that month’s sales, we will check the donation tally to see how many books will be donated for that month.
