Book of Free
Bob Wills started putting together the Book of Free in 2011 with the mission of encouraging San Antonians to explore their city’s restaurants, events, and venues. Each Book of Free overflows with certificates that stick to a theme, such as the current Dining Out Edition or last year’s Holiday Charity Challenge that users can redeem without making any additional purchases or dissecting fine print in a high-school biology class. Partnering with local, regional, and national companies, Book of Free owners can frequent eateries ranging from mom-and-pop locations to larger chains. Wills and the Book of Free team also give back to the community by donating 10% of every Book of Free sold to charity. Early in 2012, the company divvied up more than $150,000 to worthy causes, such as Haven for Hope, the San Antonio Food Bank, and Returning Heroes Home.
