Text from a book - you can donate to charity

Decluttering the house is like starting afresh. Whether you are clearing out the bookshelves to make some space or so you can refill them with new books, here’s the chance to do some good at the same time. We Buy Books is already well known as a great place to sell your unwanted items, but now you can donate some or all of the proceeds to charity.

How does it work?

There are three well-deserving charities that you can support this way. The Roy Castle Foundation informs and helps those affected by lung cancer and focuses on helping people to quit smoking, as well as scientific research into cancer. The RSPCA is the oldest and largest animal welfare organisation in the world, looking after the concerns of animals since 1824. The Gurkha Welfare Trust supports Gurkha veterans by providing pensions, grants and medical aid.

With three deserving causes to choose from, your books can make a real difference to people’s lives. You probably already support charities in some way or other, whether it is by direct debit or sending your unwanted items to a charity shop. Now, you can have an impact without struggling to take big, heavy bags of books to the high street. We Buy Books will provide free postage, so all you have to do is package up your books and take one trip to your local Collect+ point.

Donate to charity the easy way…

Some charities will pop a plastic bag through your letterbox and ask you to fill it with charitable items that they will then collect and sell on. However, many of them do not accept books, and even when they do, you have probably had the experience of having your filled bag ready on the doorstep at the prescribed time only to find that it is not collected and the items inside have been rained on. For books, that can mean they are destroyed. Furthermore, with We Buy Books, you can rest assured that the money you raise will go directly to our chosen charities.

You will also know in advance how much you have raised for your books because We Buy Books will tell you straight away. Although eBay and other book re-sellers do give you the option to make a donation of all or part of your proceeds to charity, you rarely know in advance how much that will be because it is based on the final selling price. You might choose to donate 50% of the sale price but if your book only sells for a few pence, you might regret not taking it directly to a charity shop where it would earn your good cause considerably more.

At We Buy Books, we tell you how much your book is worth before you send it off, giving you a clear idea of how much you, and your charity, will receive. What could be simpler?
