Dear Friend,

Booksellers and comic retailers appreciate your support!  Over the past two and a half years, you have been there for them - helping to make sure they didn't have to choose between food and medicine or delay escaping an abusive relationship. You made sure no one had to go without electricity, water, or a warm and safe place to sleep. You changed the lives of a record number of people we cherish. 

Here's the situation - the number of book and comic employees needing help has more than doubled since 2020!

Your continued support is critical right now

Double your donation!
Today, you can ensure 2x more booksellers don't struggle through hardship alone because your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by our friends at Penguin Random House. 

Booksellers and comic retailers know that when they call Binc, your support has ensured that there will be someone to answer their call. Someone to listen and help them unravel their complex circumstances. The hallmark of Binc is that each person asking for help is personally assisted by a program manager to determine how to relieve their overwhelming stress.

Booksellers and comic retailers are counting on you

Your donation allows Binc's program managers to say, "Help is on the way"! 

Thank you,
The Team at Binc

P.S. Please share with your friends and colleagues. 
We never know when we're going to need to ask for help. Listen to Sarah attest to the powerful impact you can have on a bookseller's life today.
