BookEnds was started by an eight-year-old boy to help recycle books. Book drives are led by students and the books donated to places such as inner-city schools, homeless shelters, and juvenile detention centers. This system helps create "readers & leaders." BookEnds has now donated more than two million books.
If you're in the Greater Los Angeles area, you can apply for a book donation. If you want to help out, you can donate (money or books), volunteer, or intern.
On July 24th (this Tuesday), you can vote for BookEnds on Toyota's 100 Cars for Good. BookEnds hopes to create a bookmobile.
BookEnds has a two-star rating from Charity Navigator.
