If you're looking into charitable donations, we hope you'll consider giving or requesting a donation to the Young Alberta Book Society. We are now members of the ATB Cares program which matches which contributes an additional 15% of every donation -- and they also cover all of the transaction costs! Donations can be made to YABS through ATB Cares here. You can also make a safe, secure, tax deductible donation through!
