Zondervan has announced a “Share, Not Shred” program designed to put used Bibles and other Christian books in the hands of people in Third World countries.

“Zondervan has announced plans to donate 40 pallets of gently used Bibles and books to World Vision and Biblica for distribution in Uganda, Zambia, Costa Rica, Chile, El Savador and India. Through these donations, Zondervan hopes to promote Christianity and get books into the hands of those who really need them. This will bring the total number of pallets donated since July 2010 to 89, a retail value of $1.63 million dollars.”

Seems like a very worthwhile effort in which to participate. The link describes ways to contribute to the effort.
