Time Frame: Middle of March 2020 - Present
Noticing the great disposal of unused books as we live in a virtual world. We started to leave designated boxes in different locations around the City. These locations gave us an advantage and a quick start to collecting books since they were frequently visited by families that always held piles of new books. Thanks to the assistance of The Art Shack Doral, Homework Plus, the Doral Park Tennis Center, we were able to fast-track many of our book collections. Even though we started on a fast track, unfortunately, we hit a wall when the pandemic began to close business, and the stay-at-home orders from the government started. Therefore we had to implement our social networking strategies to continue our goal. We began working with WhatsApp to send messages to everyone we knew asking for book donations. With the success of Books for You, we continued working on our collections through Instagram, reaching more and more followers and receiving significant contributions from communities and private schools. All the books collected have been able to be distributed to communities locally and internationally.
