outreach quotes for website

We believe that everyone has a right to be literate. As colleagues who have a penchant for education, good books, and lively conversation, Beautiful Words is a natural fit connecting our passions with purpose.


For every bookmark sold, we donate 10% to the WindsorEssex Community Foundation to support literacy in our community. That's right, your purchases are helping make an impact!

As a social enterprise, our goal is to get more books in the hands of readers. We connect with local organizations and give back to our community.  We have joined forces with non-profit organisations to provide resources, programming, and financial contributions as a way to encourage, support and promote reading and literacy within vulnerable populations. 

Together with the WECF, we have created the Beautiful Words Endowment Fund to grow our donations and support literacy programs within the community. Our fund will support programs like the Big Brothers, Big Sisters Read & Connect Book Club and other literacy charities and organizations in Windsor-Essex.

Thank you to WindsorEssex Community Foundation for working with us to help us make a difference in our community. 

Thank YOU for helping us grow our social impact story!
