Working with the schools

3 May

Bindlestiff is working with two projects that are placing books in the schools. One, which we have been working with for a while, places a new book every week in the Lea and Penn Alexander schools.

More recently we have been working with the West Philadelphia Coalition Against Islamophobia to place children’s books featuring African-American Muslim children in Philadelphia schools. We have already delivered about 150 books, and more are en route from our distributor. This story discusses the project: http://www.nbcnews.com/news/nbcblk/mom-fundraises-get-books-featuring-muslim-children-schools-n753271
