Example 2:  When a foundation, business or individual (or group of these) donates $5,000 to a local homeless shelter to buy new books from Usborne Books & More, Literacy for a Lifetime will donate an additional $2,500 in Usborne & Kane Miller books to the shelter.

How it works:
Through this program, grants/donations are used to purchase your choice of Usborne & Kane Miller titles, and are matched with 50% in additional titles of your choice for FREE.  Grants/donations MAY be tax deductible depending on the recipient.

Example 1:  When a school chooses to use a $10,000 grant to purchase new books from Usborne Books & More, Literacy for a Lifetime will donate an additional $5,000 in Usborne & Kane Miller books to the school.
