What if I don’t have an extra e-reader to donate?
No worries, here are some ways you can help:

  1. Share this event on Facebook
  2. Do your friends, relatives, professors, coworkers, teammates have an e-reader they aren’t using? Are they planning to upgrade their current e-reader? Ask if they’d be willing to donate their old one. Remember, donations can be mailed in, so non-Duke people can donate!
  3. For the holidays, ask for a new e-reader, and bring your old one back to campus to donate (or mail it in)!
  4. Buy a new or used one to donate!
  5. Ask your department office, house council member or professor if you can put a collection box there. (Contact for a box & more info.)
  6. Put up some flyers!
