Looks like the coast is clear for our first-ever BOOKMOOCH STAND at the Ateneo High School Fair. Prof Joel sent the forms through Honey and unless there are violent objections, the option of a merchandise booth is looking good. It will cost P1,200 but Patti and I have initially figured out that we could just sell books and see how we can weave in cookie freebies.
Here are my initial thoughts, please jump in and contribute.
BOOKMOOCH Booth in Ateneo High School Fair is intended to publicize, promote and propagate Bookmooch the concept and Bookmoochers Pilipinas the community.
We will inform, educate and recruit.
To inform we have the standee, the cards and the website.
To educate we will use the website to show them how to join, how to mooch, what is an angel, how to send, etc.
To recruit we will have ourselves as endorsers, recruiters and enablers in signing up.
To recover the costs, we can sell books [second hand] to be donated by members?
Or we can pool the books and get a percentage of the proceeds to recover the costs.
We need to know about wifi connections and electricity loads.
At the very worst, we bring smartbro along :-)
Did I miss anything?
We also need volunteers to man the booth on JANUARY 30 and 31, Friday and Saturday. To make it as productive as possible, we will set up basic procedures so our investment will mean more bookmoochers in the Philippines.
This is gonna be FUN but we have to WORK HARD if we want to get results :-)
