Make your Used Kindle a Tool for Change
Do you have a used Kindle that you can donate to change a life? Worldreader will accept donations of used Kindles and
refurbish them. These e-readers provide almost immediate access to hundreds of thousands of books, from textbooks to bestsellers.
Some e-readers also have added features such as text-to-speech for new readers, the vision-impaired, or children whose parents

To donate your used Kindle to Worldreader send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
