In the Philippines, BBW Book Sale works with Gawad Kalinga, as they reach out to communities in the country by giving back and helping to make a difference in every place they visit. Having the same advocacy, Gawad Kalinga has been working with the BBW Book Sale in promoting literacy, reaching out to children and adults, and sharing with them the joys and benefits of reading, as both organizations believe that reading is meant for all. BBW Book Sale is also an advocates of charities through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm, the Red Readerhood.


“Gawad Kalinga partners with institutions or individuals that can inspire the young to dream and build a poverty-free nation. A future full of hope! The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is one of those big businesses with a big heart. They make great books available and accessible to every Filipino especially the poor. This is a cause worth venturing into at a cost that is affordable for everyone,” said Harvey Maraguinot, Movement Building Head of Gawad Kalinga.
