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 September charity partner is Bloody Good Period, a charity that supplies period products to asylum seekers and refugees in the UK.
In the UK it is estimated that 75% of asylum seekers struggle to reliably source the necessary period products each month. Bloody Good Period partner with 50 drop-in centres across the UK to consistently supply them with period products and other toiletries such as deodorant and toothpaste. They also supply some homeless shelters and women who are resettling after being released from prison. Over 2000 packs of period products are distributed by the charity each month.
Bloody Good Period also run education sessions for asylum seekers, refugees and women on low incomes under an initiative called Bloody Good Education. These sessions provide free female sexual and reproductive health information and are run by qualified gynaecologists. This ensures that the women get medically accurate and relevant information.
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.
How It Works
Let's talk you through it.
Set up your subscription
Choose which subscription tier is best for you and checkout. Our cut off date for each month's box is the 5th. If you subscribe after this time you won't be charged until the 1st of the next month.
Confirm your monthly book pick
On the 1st of each month we will email your monthly book pick. If you like the look of this choice, then you don't need to do anything.
If you already own the book, or would prefer to choose another book, you can go to our website, see our other picks for the month and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with which book you would prefer to receive.
Sit back and relax!
Your box will be packaged up by our dedicated team and sent out by the 14th of the month so all you have to do is excitedly anticipate its arrival.
