Do you know how expensive school books are?
They cost at least 20€ each, and in middle school kids have like 8 or 9 different subjects...
This is a heavy financial burden for a lot a parents! Specially if you have more than on kid!
I used to know this family that couldn't afford to go on holidays because they had to save money for their 3 kids school books! They spent all summer working extra-hours to be able to afford them.
This cool project called REUTILIZAR aims to collect and re-use school books. They have several "banks" around all Portugal that you can go and get your school books - FOR FREE! I know it is nice to have new book that no one else used before, but think about the awesome stuff you could buy with the money you'd save! And it is better for the environment!
If you are fortunate enough to be able to buy new books every year, at least consider in donating your old books to this program. It would help a lot of families and a lot of kids! You can find all the book banks in their website!
Check out their facebook and share with your friends! It is the easiest way to help!
