Discount coupon to support First Book

Just got this reminder in my in box. I blogged about it a few days (weeks?) ago.

Dear Friends of First Book:
A few weeks ago we emailed you to announce National Benefit Days promotion taking place in Borders and Waldenbooks stores on August 26 and 27. With these dates just a few days away, we wanted to remind you to bring your shopping lists - and this coupon - to your local Borders or Waldenbooks store this Saturday and Sunday.

Just $25 spent on back-to-school shopping, a couple of great beach reads, or the latest CD or DVD release will help get one child in need his or her very own, and perhaps very first, new book. Borders will donate 10% of the proceeds from your purchases to First Book, who will use those funds to provide new books for children nationwide. You will benefit not only from the 10% taken off your purchase, but from the knowledge that you personally are giving children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books!

Thank you for your support of First Book!
