Make an End of Year Book Donation!

Doing a holiday clean up, or preparing to leave Shanghai? Want to help a great cause this holiday season? Leave your pre-loved books with us for future book lovers, young and adult, to enjoy. 

Shanghai Mamas has previously hosted three successful Book “Swap and Shops” (Click here to read about our latest book swap) and will host a fourth in spring, 2022. We invite anyone to contribute books for our future sale to benefit Lifeline. Lifeline remains the one and only English-speaking crisis helpline service across China. It’s a professionally run, 100% volunteer based organization. Whether it’s a personal, family, or work-related issue, a major trauma, personal loss or chronic physical or mental illness, they listen and support, offering resources and referrals to help and enable callers to take positive steps forward.

To donate: Books should be sent to EF’s HQ office. 1/F JiuAn Plaza, 258 Tongren Lu, JingAn District 静安区铜仁路258号九安广场一楼英孚教育

Books can be donated in any language, at any reading level. Please no magazines or other items. To let us know you are donating please add Sarah Cox on WeChat: xoxocox05.

Not leaving Shanghai and want to swap in the future? We will do a call for registration and a collection for swapped books in spring. Please hold off donating for now and we will release details in the early 2022.
