Seattle, Dec. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This GivingTuesday, ThriftBooks will inspire generosity by donating 1% of its gross revenue on ThriftBooks.com on December 3, 2019, to selected non-profit organizations in recognition of the national day of giving.

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 3, and throughout the year.

On December 3, 2019, ThriftBooks.com shoppers can participate in ThriftGiving simply by making a purchase of any size on ThriftBooks.com. ThriftBooks will donate 1% of gross revenue from the site on that day to local non-profit organizations across the country who in some way support and inspire reading for people of all ages.

“We believe reading empowers people, provides an education, and offers an occasional escape to fantastic worlds. We save these books from being destroyed and make them accessible to readers for the chance to shape another mind, share another story, and teach a bit of wisdom,” says Barbara Hagen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ThriftBooks. “We are excited to enable book lovers across the country to participate in ThriftGiving through their purchase on ThriftBooks.com this GivingTuesday.”

“GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year,” said Asha Curran, Giving Tuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. “With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world.”
