In these tough economic times, there are a lot of people who, I'm sure, would like to would like to contribute to efforts to fight back against the Republicans' War on Working Americans, but just don't feel contributing is in the budget for them this time.  Among this group of people, is college students; a core liberal constituency struggling to secure the skills necessary to hopefully one day land a job that will pay them enough money to donate to liberal causes regularly.  They have the idealism and the enthusiasm, but often not the money.  Aside from volunteer work, which I know from experience campaigns find invaluable, I have another way for college students to contribute.

All of the textbooks you don't need can be donated to a little bookstore I started called NotASouldier.  As a Wisconsin resident, it is important to me that Scott Walker and the Republicans' union-busting must be stopped.  The right-wing is pouring money into the Wisconsin recall and we need to fight back in any way we can.  That is why, in support of Wisconsin's unions, NotASouldier will give 50% of the proceeds from all donated books and textbooks to efforts to recall Scott Walker and his supporters in the state senate. Donations will go first to the campaigns of Walker opponents in the ongoing state senate recall elections, and then toward the state Democratic Party's future recall campaign against Scott Walker.

You can send donations to:
333 1/2 Lincoln Ave.
Eau Claire, WI 54701

Remember, books have to be able to be sold in order for there to be proceeds to donate towards the cause. Please do not donate books with water damage, missing covers, or missing pages. Books in conditions such as those cannot be sold. Thanks for your donations and generosity!

Please Recommend this diary if you're a college student or know college students.  You can also "Like" NotASouldier on Facebook.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
