Bibliophilic Excursions is committed to giving back to the world we journey. Please find some of the vendors we work with below. You can also check our social media sites for more information.
Additionally, this holiday season we are campaigning for the children of the world through our partnership with World Vision. For every order received, we will donate a $2 to supply classrooms with brand new books and provide seed money to women who want to start small businesses.
For the holidays, we will be donating $2 from every box purchased from November through January to World Vision's school supplies and seed money for women entrepreneurs. Our hope is to stock as many classrooms with books as we can this year and support as many entrepreneurs as we can.
Even if you do not purchase a Bibliophilic Excursions box this year, please consider donating directly to World Vision. They have campaigns in nearly every impacted country around the world.
