Problem: Schools are not able to afford new textbooks Solution: Allow schools to buy the updated PORTIONS of textboooks

mod:bind is the term for modular binding... meaning chapters of books can be bound and sold separately. (One patent has been awarded, three more are pending.)

In anticipation of winning November's competition (by Pepsi), mod:bind is looking raise additional funds to cover the cost of rebinding 250K books for Chicago area schools. If the grant is not awarded, your donations will be used most efficiently to launch mod:bind so it can still achieve its mission to change the way that books look -- and getting modular books to those who need them most: our schools!

Who you can help:
• 250,000 Chicago area school children who will receive modular books
• 742 School districts in Illinois who had their funding cut
• 18,100 National school districts who can't afford to buy all new textbooks

Why it matters:
Biggest ripple effect ever!
• Cut costs. Up to 75% less than traditional books
• Schools survive. Reinvest this money into other areas of education
• Students thrive. Equal playing field for all children
