Selling Textbooks for SOLD

February 2, 2011

Get Involved

The SOLD project is excited to announce our partnership with Word Made Flesh and Tree of Life Books. They’ve designed a creative way to help you get rid of those old textbooks and help us sustain our important work in northern Thailand.  The best part?  It costs you nothing. Zero. Zilch.

Here’s what you do:

  1. Go to
  2. Enter your books’ ISBN numbers.  (Or steal your roommate’s.  But probably ask first.)
  3. Print a mailing label from the site.  You pay nothing for postage.
  4. Find a box to put the books in. Preferably not one from the cafeteria kitchen that smells funny.
  5. Throw on the label and visit your friendly local post office to drop off the package.
  6. Feel good because a few minutes of work on your part just raised money for kids in Thailand!

All the profits Tree of Life makes from selling your books go directly back to The SOLD Project.

Could you do us a huge favor?  Take a minute to visit to sell your books and use easy links to spread the word via Facebook or Twitter. Or email to find out how to start a campaign on your campusOr use the text below to email your friends to encourage them to donate their books on SOLD’s behalf.  All of us here at SOLD are emailing everyone we can think of who has connections with a college campus.



Want a place to sell your textbooks and help out a good cause?  I am friends with an awesome organization called The SOLD Project, and they are preventing child exploitation through education in Thailand.   They’ve partnered with a company that will buy your used textbooks and donate the money to SOLD.  And it costs you nothing!

I mean, not that you don’t want to keep that massive World Literature book that has been faithfully propping up your desk all semester, but by donating your book through, you’re giving it to a good cause.  From there, you can also share the link via Twitter and Facebook.  Those donations will really add up to making a difference for The SOLD Project’s prevention work in northern Thailand for at-risk children.
