International Book Drive
In 2011, NBLSA members donated well over 1000 books and close to $1000 towards the creation of a library in Rwanda. This year, in an effort to promote literacy around the globe, NBLSA will be donating books and raising funds toward the creation of a children's library in another developing country. Our 2012 goal is to donate 1500 books and raise $1500.
Date | October 1, 2012 and November 5, 2012
Location | Nationwide
Partnering Organization | International Book Project
1440 Delaware Avenue
Participation | All BLSA chapters are expected to organize a (children's) book drive, fundraiser, or both. Each chapter has flexibility in the execution of this program, including the option to partner with other organizations on your campus, but participation is required. Book drives and the solicitation of funds will begin on October 1, 2012 and end on November 2, 2012. Chapters are to ensure that there is a designated area for the donation of books and funds (for example, a table or box in a well known area of your school) so that students, faculty, and staff may donate throughout the month.
100% of the donations will be shipped to the International Book Project.
Target Donation Amount | Our goal is for each chapter to collect at least 30 books and raise $30.00. Children's books are preferred but IBP welcomes all contributions.
Books collected should be shipped to International Book Project between November 5, 2012 and December 5, 2012. ALL books should be postmarked no later than December 5, 2012. Please follow the shipping directions provided by the International Book Project.
All checks for funds raised should be sent to NBLSA postmarked no later than December 5, 2012.
Please mail your check, payable to NBLSA, to:
National Black Law Student Association
