The holidays are here, and the season of giving has arrived. This year, zulily is teaming up with Penguin Random House to help donate up to 75,000 books to kids in need. From October 28 through December 12, 2019 at 6am Pacific Time, several zulily sales events will feature a curated selection of children’s books with the “BUY 1 GIVE 1” badge. Each book purchased will trigger a donation from Penguin Random House to First Book. First Book is a nonprofit social enterprise that provides new books and other essentials to children in need. In addition, each time a shopper likes, shares or comments on a Books for Kids social media post, a book donation will be triggered.
