Arianna Huffington is Giving Donations to Charity Based on Book Pre-orders

thriveTo promote her new book Thrive, Arianna Huffington has partnered with DonorsChoose to add a nonprofit element.

When customers pre-order the book before March 25, they will receive a DonorsChoose gift card for $26, equal to the book’s list price. It doesn’t matter what they pay for the book either, even if they buy it on sale, they’ll get a $26 gift card to donate to a good cause. DonorsChoose supports different projects in public schools. Donors can select the kind of project they would like to support from reading to art to math.

Here is more about the project from the DonorsChoose blog: “As more and more people are coming to realize, there is far more to living a truly successful life than just earning a bigger salary and capturing a corner office. Our relentless pursuit of the two traditional metrics of success — money and power — has led to an epidemic of burnout and stress-related illnesses, and an erosion in the quality of our relationships, family life, and, ironically, our careers.”
