The photo (above) of the page in this textbook was shared on Reddit by a student, and it turns out to be legit. The text reads:

"If you have the time and opportunity to study abstract algebra, it is likely that you are not hungry, cold and sick.

This book is being offered free of charge for your use. In exchange, if you make serious use of this book, please make a contribution to relieving the misery of the world.

For example, you could make a financial contribution to an organization such as Unicef, Doctors without Borders, Partners in Health, or Oxfam, or to an equivalent organization in your country."

A little Google search and you will find the textbook is "ALGEBRA - ABSTRACT AND CONCRETE" Edition 2.6, by Frederick M. Goodman.

With the price of college tuition and textbooks being so high today, this is a nice reminder that there are still educators who care.
