how we give back …

We believe in the value of community and small, local businesses — and in eating, shopping, and even donating locally as often as possible.

So a portion of all sales will be donated to these local (to us) nonprofit organizations, to help them with the good work they’re doing on behalf of readers, children, and cats. Thank you!

As Kentucky’s only nonprofit cat café, Lucky Cat Café & Lounge provides a peaceful, relaxing home and adoption facility for cats that have been rescued/fostered by three different Louisville-area organizations. And their Book Buddies program helps struggling readers, in grades 3 through 6, by letting them read to cats.

The privately funded Lexington Humane Society is Central Kentucky’s largest pet-adoption agency. And it’s where we met and adopted our own sweet Leo Kitty.

Our local Carnegie Center for Literacy & Learning “empowers people to explore and express their voices through imaginative learning and the literary arts,” helping all ages through classes and special programs, and helping kids through tutoring programs.

The International Book Project donates thousands of books to organizations helping readers both here locally and all over the world, all from right here in Lexington.


And, of course, we encourage you to support your own local charities, too, as you’re able.
