Want one of our cool, new, Books for Keeps totes? Read on.

A group of graduate students from UGA’s School of Social Work is throwing a short-notice fundraiser to help our efforts to raise 13,000 more books. We’re thrilled to be the recipients of their fundraiser – but they need your help getting the word out.

Bring your kids to Avid Bookshop this Saturday, Feb. 18th, from 2-4. There will be all sorts of fun activities:
– A Play-Doh art station, AND a demonstration of how to make your own “doh” at home
– A bouncy castle, generously provided by Earthen Excursions
– Sidewalk chalk-drawing stations.

Now about those tote bags: the School of Social Work hostesses will be selling these Books for Keeps tote bags, too. 100% of the proceeds from activities and tote sales will be given to Books for Keeps.

You are welcome to bring gently-used books for kids in K-12.

Avid will be selling books from our wish list, and 10% of the proceeds from book sales will be donated to us as well. If you haven’t already heard, we’re trying to raise 13,000 MORE books by May 1 – so this is a great opportunity to help us reach our goal.

Help us spread the word about this short-notice fundraiser – viral is our only option and we need your help. Here’s a link to the Facebook event – please share it with your friends. Hope to see you Saturday!
