Book drive

If I hear you are doing any type of collection or 
"drive" for the benefit of a good cause,
I am the first to pitch in.

As far as I can recall, I have participated in drives that benefit
the elderly, newborns, disabled and such.

This time around I am helping a cousin out with 
a book drive to benefit a local library.

Since I don't have much time on my hands, I sent out
a few messages on Twitter and FB.
Then decided to place a big old suitcase in the lobby
of my apartment building with a sign asking neighbours
to drop off any unwanted books 
to be used to benefit this particular library.

A day passed and there were no books in the suitcase.
Suddenly there was an overload. 
Books in English, Spanish and French began to appear.
The suitcase was totally full and bags with more books were set aside. 
Then, there were piles of books on the floor.
Then… books began to disappear !
Apparently some neighbours thought that they could
benefit from the drive and began to steal the books.
This was a first for me.
At the end I collected about 500 books,
which I don't think is that bad considering
that many "went missing".

You are dressed simple but tasteful, that white suit looks very chic and feminine at the same time. Lovely snapshots as well;)
Have a fabulous time!

Hahah, I guess they thought it was more of a swap! I think 500 is a ton, I would not want to deal with transporting 500 books...
Chic on the Cheap
