Good morning everyone, in case you haven’t heard yet, we are having a love campaign for Booksellers on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15. It’s called “Show Your Love for Booksellers” and I’m planning on making this a massive 24-hour campaign in support of Booksellers. Look at yesterday’s update if you want to see exactly what we’ve laid out for this event. For the next several days, I will be elaborating on the numerous aspects of the event to give you a better idea of how the love campaign will play out and today I’d like to share with you the most time sensitive one: fundraising.
So far, we’ve raised $100 out of our $1200 goal. What will the money we raise be used for? Well here are the things we are raising money via donations for:
-Upgrading and expanding the current Booksellers Petition website: https://emsfilm.wixsite.com/booksellerspetition) and moving it to a new domain.
-Fund a social media ad campaign to encourage people to participate in the February 15th “Show Your Love for Booksellers” event online.
-Pay for all the paper/ink and other such supplies necessary to spread the word about the February 15th event.
Fundraising is an extremely important aspect of making this a successful campaign. Maybe you can’t donate more than a few dollars and that’s perfectly fine…every dollar counts. Every dollar we raise is just that many more people we can reach and encourage to participate on February 15th. If you don’t want to donate online, you can send your donations to Emmett Miskell, 5217 Park Avenue, Memphis, Tennessee 38119. Here’s the link: https://www.gofundme.com/booksellerspetition
I’d additionally like to strongly encourage you to share this GoFundMe with your friends and on social media and help us get to $1200! I’m currently working on setting up our new website, working with our local leaders to garner support for the February 15th event, and working to save Booksellers.
Don’t forget you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
