Book Clubs for Philanthropy

An article in Philanthropy Today was about the charity Mercy Corp, which is organizing book clubs that read, discuss, and donate to womens causes in developing countries. According to the Chronicle of Philanthropy's column on Prospecting:

A project by Mercy Corps centered on a new book Half the Sky by journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl Wudunn. Kristof and Wudunn argue that many of society’s problems can be alleviated by improving the status of women. Mercy Corps' focus is primarily on alleviating hunger in developing countries.
