Dear Friend,
Time is running out - don't miss your chance to help a family, today!

Over the past month, booksellers and comic retailers have been working hard to make sure the right book was given to the right person. With the dropping temperatures and snow storms that swept the country many are at risk.  Your support today will help to pay a utility bill or a rent payment. 

"Thank you so so very much for all your help! You have made me feel so much less dire than I was feeling just a few days ago, so thank you truly from the bottom of my heart. I'm warm and safe." - a store employee who was unexpectedly facing homelessness 

Booksellers and comic retailers have fewer places to turn to for help. 

You can help today!

Your gift by December 31 is essential to providing a place for our friends and colleagues to turn when a hardship disrupts their life.
Donate Today!
Happy New Year,
Your friends at Binc!

P.S. Thank you in advance for delivering hope this giving season.
