Dear Fellow Readers & Book Lovers:
If you’re like me, you just can’t imagine living in a world without reading. Unfortunately, for almost a billion people today, that’s exactly where they find themselves. There are countless villages, towns and vast regions of this planet where the power of reading has yet to shine its light.
Even in wealthy countries, libraries struggle for funding while demand for their services has never been higher.
Gone Reading International, LLC was founded to counter these problems and spread the magic of reading. We believe that when people have open access to great reading materials, life always changes for the better. When libraries and reading materials are made available, people and their communities thrive through increased opportunity and self-empowerment.
That’s why Gone Reading International donates 100% of our after-tax profits to provide new funding for libraries and reading-centered non-profits. By purchasing GoneReading brand gifts and merchandise, you’re treating yourself and the world at large to a wonderful gift. All purchases from GoneReading help contribute to our philanthropic work.
In the Developing World
We donate to great non-profits such as READ Global and Ethiopia Reads, amazing organizations with proven models, long track records, and dedicated teams on the ground. Such groups partner with local villages and communities in the most underdeveloped parts of the world to create new libraries that effect real change.
In the United States, Canada, United Kingdom & Australia
GoneReading is currently piloting a fundraising program to raise money for public libraries and reading-centered non-profit organizations within the U.S. Details are still pending, but if you represent such an organization in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom or Australia and would like to learn about participating in this program, simply Contact Us.
Although our company just started in 2011, our goal is to provide significant financial assistance to libraries around the world, allowing them to achieve greater scale and impact.
Make A Purchase & Share Our Story
We invite you to join the GoneReading family by making a purchase of our gifts for readers, and equally important, sharing our story with the book lovers and readers in your life (feel free to use the “share” icons in the bottom right of this page).
Happy Reading!Bradley S. Wirz
