Why Me to We Books?
The Story of Me to We books
We all love stories. After all, what is life but a tale that unfolds before us? Me to We Books tell stories that truly touch our lives; stories for the young and not-so-young, about topics that matter. They shed light on everyday heroes committed to making a positive change in the world. These award-winning and bestselling books share the stories of all kinds, from well-known humanitarians to child labourers. Many of these books are guides to making a positive change both local and globally, whether socially or environmentally. They challenge readers to move away from the pitfalls of apathy toward the rewards of changing the world one step at a time.
Buy a Book, Give a Book
Me to We books are also having a direct and tangible impact on children in the developing world. For every book that is purchased from Me to We, a child in a developing country receives a notebook. By providing the physical resources for a child to make the most of their schooling, Me to We is helping children pursue their dream of education. When you buy a Me to We book, you can enjoy using it as a guide to start changing your world, and you also have the knowledge that you are giving the same gift of knowledge and passion to a child in a developing community.
