Last Chance to Help The Book and Comic Community This Year!

Dear Friend,
The Binc Foundation serves book and comic people in times of need because of you!

Today is the last day to help a bookseller in 2022.

You can be the light of hope in a bookseller's life when a tragic death, unexpected job loss, catastrophic illness, or accident happens. 
Please know your contribution will go right to work helping a family this week. 

Thank you for being part of the book and comic community – a community that takes care of each other.

We wish you and yours a safe, warm, and joyous New Year!

With gratitude,
The Binc Foundation Team
