A Better Community Through Literacy Book Drive
For Better World Books
Author Melica Nicole joins forces with owner of Urban Spirit Coffee Shop & Art Gallery, Charity Martin-Via, and literacy enthusiast, Takiyah Baltimore-Nelson, in "A Better Community Through Literacy Book Drive." The purpose of the book drive is to obtain new and used books that are then donated to Better World Books. Better World Books sells these books for a profit and uses a portion of the sales to fund "literacy programs throughout the world with the promise of a better life." Businesses, organizations, and individuals who make donations to these four individuals will receive special acknowledgement of donations on Twitter, Facebook, and other web based media sites.
The book drive will be held in Columbus, Ohio beginning on 11/14/11. It is the hope of Melica, Charity, and Takiyah to obtain at least 100 books by January 31, 2012.
Please send or drop off your donations to the following locations:
Urban Spirit Coffee Shop & Art Gallery
893 E. Long Street
Columbus, Ohio 43203
