Books with a purpose...opportunities in your community
Engaging Our Neighbors for Success and Opportunity.... When Charles Bonker posted his first used book on Amazon in 2014, he knew that it was the beginning of his dream to help people like him. Charles learned early that autism does not define him — and he knows we all have talents that can flourish in the right environment.
Charles found the right match at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, taking what he learned from Amazon and enrolling as a Social Entrepreneurship major. As he approaches graduation, Charles is expanding the business to offer meaningful work to other people with special needs and Love Your Neighbor Books was born.
Charles Bonker and Love Your Neighbor Books discovered their niche at the right time. As more people are diagnosed and public awareness grows, families and community leaders are looking for ways to open new horizons in meaningful ways. Charles knows that few things provide satisfaction like hard work, and he wants to share this joy with as many people as possible.
