    The Buy 1, Give 2

    Part of our goal is to donate a copy of the book to each of the ~250 people who shared their stories in the book, plus the members of our team. This reward level is your opportunity to help us do that. You'll receive:

    • 1 copy of the book
    • 3 postcards with Humans of St. Louis photostories
    • acknowledgment in the book and on the website

    AND, this will purchase 2 copies of the book which will be donated to the book's Humans and team members. Donated copies will be allocated to the Humans first, then team members, and then any additional copies donated via this reward will be reserved for good causes.

    (If you don't want to be acknowledged in the book or on the website, just let us know!)
