for families in serious financial need
| A parent without the
money to spend for books may request free items from our catalog. We have
in mind families without a parent who has a job and/or whose small income
is almost all consumed by alcohol or some other problem the applying parent
can't help. These would be people who aren't spending money for entertainment
such as sports events and/or unnecessary things including Harry Potter
books, CDs, game devices, and entertainment software although they may
already have some of these. They aren't buying more than the the essential
clothing. They very rarely buy unhealthful foods like deserts. They aren't
making payments on a car they bought new since the time of their hardship.
They either have no credit cards or are not using them for more than they
can pay each month.
If you or someone you
know feel you are described here or if you (they) for some other reason
which you (they) can explain is in this kind of need, here's what you (they)
do. Go to our catalog select what you want and figure only what we have
noted for shipping charges. If no shipping charge is shown for Doing
Science figure $1.50. If an item qualifies for a lower price when purchased
with a green-o item for which you are paying the shipping charge, it will
be entirely free for you (them). We will send slightly damaged or shelf-worn
books, or we may send perfect ones. We usually don't have used ones. Use
our order form or make your own list. Add a note saying that you have read
this and that you qualify or explaining why you should. Don't hesitate
to ask for everything you want. Our mailing address is below.
We have a few curriculum
material items which have been received for review. Ask if interested.
Tell what grades your kids are in and give us your phone number if you
have one. We will figure postage and let you know.
Someone outside the
US may also apply explaining their situation. We can figure shipping charges.
We may withdraw these offers and reserve the right to deny a request. Your
personal information is kept confidential.
