The Gentle Bookshop believes that the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People Of Colour) and LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Intersex, Asexual) community deserves to be able to read, regardless of their financial position.The "Pay It Forward" option encourages our customers to donate so we can provide books for our BIPOC/
LGBTQIA+community for free. We will not be policing anyone's financial position, but we ask that you use this option only when needed, and consider others who may benefit from it too.
How to Donate/Pay It Forward:
Customers can choose to pay forward a value of 2€, 5€, 10€, 15€ and 20€ onto their order. This will go into The Gentle Bookshop's "Pay It Forward" piggy bank. 🐷
