Accio Books 2017

Accio Books ’17 was the second edition of Accio Books, an initiative to collect used / unused books, spanning all genres, by The Harry Potter Alliance. Last year , we get ourselves a realistic target of around 200 books and surpassed that with 600 books being collected. This year, we wanted to keep up with last year’s numbers and we did achieve that. This year’s count stands at 630+ books and 25 educational magazines! A big shout out to everybody who contributed to the cause, you are the ones who keep us motivated! Special mention to the residents of RNS Shanti Nivas, members of the Kiara silver chorale and the techies at GeekyAnts for their active contributions.

The majority of this year’s collections

All the books have been sent to the Ratna Nidhi Charitable Trust who will distribute it to those not as privileged as the majority of us. The books were collected over a span of 3 months, from April to June, at different places such as residential apartments, offices, colleges and public spaces. A big thank you to Ratna Nidhi Trust for helping us in the pickup and distribution.

We will definitely keep up with Accio Books in the coming years and will be spreading our activities and contributions in the coming months. We have been pretty low for a while, but it’s only going to get better! Stay tuned!

Helping the world become a better  place, one book at a time!

 

Accio Books 2016

Our first ever campaign, Accio Books, was a raging success! Our goal was to collect about 250 books, but we blew past that goal and managed to collect and donate over 600! The collected educational books and textbooks were donated to the Youth Development Program, and the other fiction/non-fiction books were donated to the People’s Free Library. The campaign ran from April 2016 through June 2016, and collections took place in community spaces (apartments, colleges, and the Kiara Music Academy).
