On Sunday April 29th, 2018, Bay Used Books hosted a fundraiser for the Zawadi la Tumaini Children's Home located in Nairobi, Kenya.
The event was a huge success. Bay Used Books was happy to present a cheque for $2,000 from book sales to the Children's Home to continue their ongoing efforts to provide a loving home to orphaned and abandoned children of all backgrounds.
Thank you to all our customers old and new for coming in on Sunday to support this worthy cause.

We also collect used eye glasses for this cause!
