Merchandise, Book Sales Support Binc

An number of publishers and sidelines suppliers are partnering with the Book Industry Charitable Foundation to produce items that benefit Binc's mission of helping booksellers and comic book retailers in need.

With Sourcebooks, Binc has published My Medical Journal, a book that aims to help readers navigate the medical field and log their personal treatment plans. It features research from medical teams, social workers, therapists, and lawyers in the medical field and offers advice on everything from keeping accurate records to asking doctors and healthcare providers the right questions. Proceeds from the book go to Binc.

Rays for Compassion's Book Lover's Bracelet features various charms including a mini library card, a tiny Pride and Prejudice, and a charm with the words "I Love Books." The bracelet comes attached to a card that can also serve as a bookmark. A portion of the bracelet's sales are donated to Binc.

Dissent Pins has created an I'm with the Banned sticker. Measuring 3" wide by 3.5" tall, it features a stack of books in front of a flame. 50% of the profits from the sticker will go to Binc.

From now until Independent Bookstore Day 2024 (April 27), Fly Paper Products will donate a portion of the proceeds from sales of its new Indie Bookstore Candle to Binc. The scent is cocoa butter, honey, and cashmere, and the name was chosen by indie bookseller Caitlin Moore of Pear Street Books and Plants, Oklahoma City, Okla., as part of a naming contest run by Fly Paper Products to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

Beacon Book Light is donating a portion of wholesale proceeds from its Indie Beacon Book Light to Binc. Independent bookstore owners Mike Buglio (the Book Rack, Arlington, Mass.) and Debbie Sullivan (the Book Oasis, Stoneham, Mass.) created the book light last year. It is available only to independent bookstores.

Steerforth Press, meanwhile, is making a donation to Binc whenever a bookseller joins its e-mail list or requests an ARC for the first time.

Bookstores, regional bookseller associations, and even thriller author Michael Connelly have done T-shirt sales through Bonfire that have benefited Binc. Anyone can set up a T-shirt sale, and Bonfire can help with designs. Binc is a registered charity, and funds raised through these T-shirt sales go directly to Binc.
