Tell Me Something Good: Father Daughter Duo Open Up Free Bookstores All Over Their City

With so many people struggling financially lately because of the pandemic it’s so nice to see someone help out their community.

This father and daughter in Chicago had already started a charity back in 2009 called Books 4 Cause that takes used books and gives them out for free.  After the pandemic hit this year, they decided to start taking vacant store fronts and turn them into bookstores.  FREE bookstores.  Where anyone can go get a book without paying anything for it.

This works so well on many different levels.  Filling up empty store spaces so the area doesn’t look so depressing.  Also reading is one of the most important things we can all do, especially the youth of America. So the fact they are making books available to people no matter what their financial situation is truly inspiring.
