Meghan is giving 2000 copies of her book to organizations
Meghan and Harry's nonprofit Archewell already launched a successful charity initiative earlier this year in partnership with World Central Kitchen. And in their latest post— titled "Nourishing Communities Through Reading"— the organization reflects on the importance of "nourishment through learning and connection."
Archewell's statement then goes on to announce that Meghan and the foundation "have received the support of the publisher of The Bench to distribute 2,000 copies at no cost to libraries, community centers, schools, and nonprofit programs across the country."
The statement also shares that Meghan "believes the path ahead must include a focus on well-being," which is why she values all kinds of enrichment and support. The Bench is the first book from the Duchess of Sussex, who has revealed that the beautifully illustrated story about a father and son was inspired by a poem she wrote for Harry!
