Right about now I’m wishing I had a marketing communications expert to find some really cool way to tell you about this, but alas, I do not. So here goes:

Bring the most children’s books for grades K-12 to our sort room between now and Thursday, November 18th, and you’ll win a free cut and color with Shayne McBride at City Salon and Spa. Second prize: free haircut.

The October book drive is over, Thanksgiving and the holiday season are approaching, and Books for Keeps still needs many, many more books. Shayne donated two gift certificates for us to use as motivation for all of you haven’t yet cleaned off your bookshelves. (Thank you Shayne!)

She’s talented… and don’t you want to look good for the holidays?

Collect from your friends… coworkers… neighbors… church… school… hold a Facebook drive… we don’t care where you get the books. Just bring them in!

You’ve got ONE WEEK, let’s see what you can do.

Deadline is 6pm Thursday Nov 18th. Leave your books (with your name & contact info on the bags/boxes) in the lobby of the Whatever It Takes office at 1000 Barber Street (that’s the old school across from the chicken plant.) I’ll contact the two winners on Friday Nov 19th.
