At Once Upon a Book Club, we believe that self-care and reading go hand-in-hand. There's nothing quite like getting lost in the pages of a good book, immersing yourself in new worlds, and connecting with compelling characters. We believe in bringing books to life with our uniquely curated books and gifts, which is why our book subscription boxes are a hit with kids, young adults, and adults.
But we also recognize that not everyone has the same access to these literary escapes. That's why we created the OUABC Cares program – to give back to the community of bookworms who love and support us as a brand and share the magic of reading with those who need it most.
What is OUABC Cares?
OUABC Cares is an initiative close to our hearts. It's a program that aims to spread the joy of reading by providing literature and entertainment to deserving individuals, organizations, and book clubs. We believe in the profound power of books, a power that can uplift the spirit, ignite the imagination, and provide solace in times of need. It's a power that transcends the ordinary, reaching into the very soul to heal and inspire. With a heart full of bookish love, we are committed to sharing this extraordinary force with those who find themselves in challenging times or who simply need a spark of literary joy to brighten their path.
How Does OUABC Cares Work?
The program is simple, yet impactful. Customers can nominate individuals, organizations, or book clubs that they feel could benefit from receiving a Once Upon a Book Club book box. Whether it's a family member, friend, teacher, nurse, coworker, non-profit, library, hospital, or any other group or program making a positive difference in the community, all are eligible for nomination.
Bringing Book Clubs Together
We all know that book clubs are not just about discussing books; they're about fostering connections and creating a sense of belonging. For in-person and virtual book clubs, we offer a unique experience where each member receives a Once Upon a Book Club box. Inside are carefully wrapped gifts, each labeled with page numbers from the featured novel. As they read, they get to open the corresponding gifts, adding an interactive and delightful element to their shared reading journey.
Building communities, one book at a time
Throughout the past month, we've had the privilege of touching the lives of book clubs and individuals through OUABC Cares. Here are a few stories that remind us why we do what we do:
Hoile Girls Book Club
The Hoile Girls Book Club, formed by Joyce, started as a heartfelt gift for her four daughters and daughter-in-law. When the pandemic forced them to meet virtually, their book club became a source of solace and connection. Now, as they gather in person again and welcome more family members, we sent them our "Madame Mustache" box to read and enjoy together.
Broadmoor Book Club
This tight-knit group of neighbors, lovingly referred to as "Club," embodies the essence of female friendship and community. Always supporting one another, they've been reading together since October 2020. We sent them our "Write Your Own Story" box to cherish during their next meeting, strengthening their bonds through the love of literature.
Mosaic Book Club
In a new neighborhood community, the Mosaic Book Club came together to unite neighbors through their shared passion for reading. To kickstart their reading adventure, we sent them our "Through Thick and Thin" boxes, hoping to create lasting connections and cherished memories.
