Big Bad Wolf Book Sale also encourages shoppers to share the gift of reading and learning by donating books to those in need. Big Bad Wolf starts the movement off by pledging to donate 1,000 books to Gawad Kalinga. The books will be distributed to people from communities affected by the Taal Volcano eruption, as well as to barangays and public schools in Mindoro.
