Print Place in Lansing, Common Good Printing, Commits 2% of Sales to Charities

August 19, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Common Good Printing, an online print place offering full-color printing for less, has committed to giving 2% of all sales to a select list of charitable organizations. Among these organizations is Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), a foundation committed to motivating young children to read by working with them and their families to make reading fun.

In RIF's own words, they explain why we at Common Good Printing are so proud to have them on our list of preferred charities:

"RIF's passion for literacy creates a unique method of distribution: Dozens of books are displayed, allowing children to explore their interests and make their own choices. The books are free but the moments are priceless, as excited readers show off their selections, pose for pictures, and ask in wide-eyed amazement: "I really don't have to bring this book back to the library?"

"I chose a group of 10 charities that, like RIF, are concerned about serving the common good," said Common Good founder Randy Root. "And I'm looking forward to expanding the list of charities we can help or special fund-raising efforts we can support. The main thing is that I want people to have a chance to do something important for others when they use our online printing services."

Socially-conscious printing buyers don't have to compromise high quality or low prices to do business with Common Good. "We provide the highest quality cheap prints on a wide range of printed materials," said Root. "My company was designed to do what the name says serve the common good. If I don't provide excellent printing at low prices, people will take their printing needs somewhere else and that means fewer donations."
