Doing Good Together

Back-to-School Season Starts with Important Causes

We’re in the middle of back-to-school season and, in addition to storing up on pencils and paper, we’re recognizing nonprofits devoted to education and literacy. In the spirit of back-to-school, we’ve found two worthy causes that are doing important work for students, education and literacy. First Book and are both featured causes on eBay all week, and you’ll have the option to support them whenever you buy or sell on eBay. Learn more about these worthy causes below.

First Book: First Book’s mission is to provide new books to children in need and - by doing so - they directly and proactively affect literacy. Through their book distributions, they have given more than 90 million free and low-cost books in thousands of communities. When you support, your donations allow teachers to achieve goals in their classrooms. Teachers submit project ideas and request materials for their students, and donors can choose whichever project is most appealing to them.
