Welcome to Books With A Conscience
Read books. Make Change.
What We Do
Books With A Conscience is a subscription box service aimed at helping you to make a difference.
Every month you will receive a hardback book, based on your reading preferences and favourite genres. Most of the profits of your purchase will be donated to our monthly chosen charity, allowing you to fuel your reading habits whilst supporting important causes across the UK and beyond.
We handpick smaller charities that you may not have heard of before and we provide, with your box, all the information about the work that month's charity is doing so you can learn exactly how your subscription is making a difference.
This Month's Charity
Our March charity partner is The Trussell Trust, a UK charity that supoorts a nationwide network of food banks.
In the UK, more than 14 million people are living in poverty - including 4.5 million children. The Trussell Trust works to support those who are food insecure or in crisis by supporting more than 1200 food banks across the UK. The main way they do this is by ensuring the food banks can provide a minimum of three days of nutritionally balanced emergency food to people who have been referred to the food bank in crisis. The Trussell Trust also provide support help people resolve the crises that they face, to reduce their need for food bank services in the future.
The Trussell Trust also act as a campaign group to provide evidence of the effects of extreme poverty and food insecurity to change policy and push for positive solutions to tackle these issues. The Trussell Trust believe the UK should be a place where everyone has enough money for essentials and no one should need to use a food bank. Advocating for a more equitable benefits system and secure incomes is one way to do this.
This is our standard subscription. Every month, receive a hardback book, based on your favourite genres and reading preferences, straight to your doorstep. A minimum of £2.00 of your money goes directly to support our monthly charity.
Want to give more money to charity each month? Tier two provides the same box of a handpicked hardback book but you can be guaranteed that a minimum of £5.00 from your order will go directly to our chosen charity each month.
Tier three is our highest donation tier. It combines the monthly subscription box of a hardback book handpicked for you with at least £7.00 going directly to support the work of our monthly charity.
