Spread the gift of literacy! Host a book drive in your school or community to benefit the underprivileged.
Find your target. Contact someone to receive the books
the local library
a nursing home
Location is key. Set up boxes in your area’s schools, stores, hospitals, or anywhere else you’d think you’d snag a lot of reads (get permission first, though). In addition, see if your local library or book stores have any books they’d like to donate for a good cause.
Promote. Get the word out in any way possible (fliers, posters, cold calling, social networking, email blasts, etc). Make sure to include the following information in your promotional material:
Dates of the drive
What books to bring and in what condition (mint to good condition would be preferable)
Purpose of the drive
Organize your books. Separate your newly donated reading material based on age group, where the books are going to go, and whether the book is paperback or hardcover.
Send ‘em away. Once all of your hard work is done, arrange a time to deliver your books to the place that you’ve coordinated with.
