Hello, I would like to ask for your help. I represent a second - hand bookstore and we want to organize as many social projects as we can, but we need all kind of ideas, this is why I am here. We already did one project - people gave us old books and we plant trees in return or we created mini libraries in hospitals. Maybe, you can suggest something else? Every idea of project or event is very welcome. Thank you!

Well, I think the kind of community in which you are located makes a difference. For instance, if there are a lot of children in your area, you might think about having a children's reading hour. If it's a university community, something that appeals to that age bracket.

You have a point here, but it is a little bit different. Our bookstore is located in the huge shopping mole, so there are going to be many people from all age groups, so we do not have one target group. This is why I would be very thankful for all ideas.

Starter Ideas to build from:

1. Have a SUNFLOWER WEEK, where you offer small packets of Sunflowers to be planted around town in exchange for old books brought in.

2. Set up a weekly FREE COFFEE FOR BOOKS HOUR where you give small cups of coffee or tea
in exchange for old books.

3. Work with an Animal Rescue to bring a few pets to be adopted,
with 50% of the money earned selling your books that day donated to the Rescue.

4. Connect with a school with low income students who are given a Ticket to come to your store
to choose free books.

5. Join with other stores in the mall to sponsor a monthly DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) DAY >

Every Hour (?), a gong would sound and people would find a book to sit and read for 5 minutes, then add a small donation to collection jars in each store. Money collected could fund Free Books for Three Year Olds - to encourage parents to read with kids...or for ???

The store that raised the most money would receive a $10 certificate to your store.

6. Build a Little Library in front of your store for Magazines to be donated and exchanged.

7. Make the First Saturday of each month a Bring in a Can of Food to Donate (to ?) and receive a
20% (?) Discount on every book purchased.
