While surfing away during Read an eBook Week this past week, I came across this nugget of information I thought I would share with each of you…
Many times, I am asked by people what to do with an older Kindle that is sitting around collecting dust because the owner either upgraded to a newer model or just doesn’t use it any more. My normal response is to check around with a local charity, such as a shelter or literacy group in the person’s area as I am sure one of them would appreciate a Kindle or other ebook reader.
If you have a used Kindle, a non-profit group called Worldreader will accept donations of used Kindles and refurbish them: these used Kindles provide an opportunity to people in the developing world access to digital books. Using e-readers and mobile phones, the Worldreader organization provides children and their families access to tens of thousands of local and international eBooks so they can improve their lives.
You can check out their website at http://www.worldreader.org – take a look at their website and click on the links: I’m impressed!
If you would like to donate your used Kindle to Worldreader, just send them an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Also, if you know someone who has a used Kindle they are no longer using, why not pass along this information to them?
Have a great rest of your day!
