At Active Words Unite, giving back is a fundamental tenet of our business. We firmly believe that it is our responsibility as a corporate citizen (and co-inhabitants of this beautiful planet) to leave the Earth and its people better than we found them.  We take this so seriously that we have pledged to donate 5% of all of our profits to charity. We want to thank you, our valued customers, for your loyalty by including you in the joy of giving. Any time you purchase a work published by Active Words Unite, fill out the form below to let us know where your share of the donations should go. Information provided will be used to verify your purchase and will NOT be sold or shared (we take your privacy seriously--please see our privacy policy for additional details). Available charity options have been chosen both for their missions and reputation for excellence (see expanded descriptions at the bottom of the page). If you feel passionate about a particular charity, and would like to see it added to our options in the future, please let us know in the "Suggest a Charity" space in the form below. Thank you for your patronage! Happy giving!

NOTE: Our give back policy represents a guaranteed donation of 5% of company profits. Indie publishers exist because of a passion for the written word, not because of large profit margins in the crowded publishing industry. However, after years of continued growth, Active Words Unite is excited to be perched on the verge of profitability. Not too shabby for a little fish in a sea of giants. In 2019, we expect to issue our first checks to the organizations chosen by our customers. Thank YOU for making this dream a reality!
