We take books that no one wants and sell them, giving back almost 100% of the revenue to your organization. We only keep $0.35 of each sale to cover our shipping materials.People around us are in great need, every single day. If we open our eyes and our hearts, we can help make things better, one person at a time.A book donated in love can be sold to help feed and clothe the homeless and provide real change for someone in the greatest of need.A book donated in love can help provide clean drinking water to strangers on the other side of the world to provide a better quality of life and reduce diseases from drinking contaminated water.A book donated in love can help pay skyrocketing medical bills for the weakest of patients who need life saving treatments.A book donated in love can help schools struggling with their budgets to get new reading materials and equipment for their classrooms.Donating your unwanted books has a direct impact in your community. By giving the money back, we help empower the organizations who can make real and lasting changes and make the world a better place one day at a time.We give because it is good and right. We give because Jesus asked us to tend to his sheep. Together, with your books, we can do more.
Welcome to Books For Blessings. Together, we can do more. Books which you have laying around your house are being used to help make this world a better place, one sale at a time. Whether you are a church looking to better fund your mission fields, a non-profit looking to better fund your cause, a school needing to make financial ends meet due to budget shortfalls, or an individual looking to help pay off medical expenses, we may just be able to help you out.
By design, our system is designed to be low profit. We want to cover our expenses but turn the majority of revenue back to our client organizations which are donating the books. After our costs are covered, if we still have money in our general fund, we use that for what we have coined as “guerrilla witnessing” where we can help people in emergency financial situations.

We are helping a gentleman in our town who is living in some pretty rough conditions. Bob lost his wife due to an unexpected medical issue and then lost his job a few years ago and his life just seemed to spiral out of control. Everyone needs as many chances as it takes to get back on track. We met Bob in October 2017 through answering a random Facebook post where he was asking for scrap metal to repair his roof. We started asking questions and decided it was time to do something.
How can people really get back on track when they don’t have hope? As Christians, it is our job to be mirror and reflect the light of Christ in what we say and what we do so that others can see our faith and come to know Jesus as their true Lord and Savior. Helping someone in Christian love is what it is all about.
We’ve been working with Bob and are his biggest cheerleaders. He has been working as a mechanic in town, working on cleaning up his home and yard and most importantly, coming to church and worshiping with our family.
There is still a lot to do. Our goal is to fix his foundations – both in life and in his home. We are in desparate need of your financial gifts and have setup various streams through which you can donate. Thank you in advance for your generous gifts.
