Sandhurst, Berks, United Kingdom, 2009/09/10 - 33% of the profits from Abela Publishing's "Folk-lore, Fairy Tales. Myths and Legends" will be donated to institutions which offer educational scholarships.
In association with World Literacy Day, Abela Publishing announces it’s “Buy A Book – Sponsor An Education” campaign where 33% of the profit from its “Folk-Lore, Fairy Tales, Myths and Legends” series is being used to sponsor educations for underprivileged individuals around the globe.
A newcomer to the publishing world, Abela Publishing (abelapublishing.com), is using the profits from out of print books to sponsor educations in the countries from which the stories originate. The books, now out of print, were originally published a minimum of 90 years ago with some original publications occurring in the mid-1800’s. To date Abela Publishing has published 21 books in the series and has plans to add two to three books to the series every month.
The books are categorised according to the region of the world in which the stories originate. To date this covers:
• The United Kingdom, Western Europe and stories of Celtic origin
• Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia
• The Americas
Abela Publishing also has plans to add books from the Orient and the Far East to the series.
In the UK the Princes Trust is the recipient of the proceeds from 7 books which cover Folk-Lore, Fairy-Tales, Myths and Legends from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The American Indian Education Foundation is the recipient of the donations for stories with Native American origins.
Three books have been specifically produced for the Westville Boys High Scholarship fund, benefitting underprivileged South Africans.
