This Christmas season, National Book Store is the perfect place to find the best home-organizing items, school project finds and the most unique gift ideas. In this holiday rush, we all don’t need to fret because what we need during the holidays is at our favorite bookstore.
More than just shopping for gifts, customers can also participate in National Book Store’s Project Aklat which aims to help marginalized schools and kids get the best education possible. Project Aklat is an annual Christmas book drive where pre-selected books donated by generous customers are collected and distributed to deserving children, schools and libraries.
Customers can buy participating books based on the actual wish lists of the recipient schools. These are then distributed by the National Book Store Foundation which has so far donated books to more than 400 schools.
As we celebrate this season of giving and sharing, spread the love for reading and help build the dreams of the future generations. Through Project Aklat, Filipinos can give love not only in the confines of their homes but also across communities all over the Philippines. Purchase and donate books for Project Aklat 2014 from November 14 to December 31, 2014 at all National Book Store and Powerbooks branches.
