Help Lucky Dog Books in Oak Cliff

$1,200 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 3 months
My wife and I founded a couple general used bookstores in  Dallas and Mesquite, Texas over 40 years ago. After folks had asked us for years to do another location in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, we finally did about 5 years ago. And we love this bookstore and those who have made use of it.

With the help of our creative staff, and our neighbors bringing us great books, movies and music to recycle, Lucky Dog Books has become a wonderfully diverse bookstore that makes enjoying all these things so very affordable allowing folks to enjoy much more of them than they would be able to afford without our trade-in system that let's them pay for half of their purchases with the stuff they recyle.

But we have run into a lot of ups and downs in getting the bookstore to this point, and we cannot wait any longer to ask for help to raise the money necessary to get caught up on the obligations that all of our own funds have not been able to meet.

These include mostly back rent and property taxes. And an amount for working capital going forward to let more readers know about the wonders of this bookstore and  to act as a contingency fund for the unexpected.

We are NOT asking for "donations". When you contribute to this campaign, you will receive one or more gift certificates for the full value of your contribution that you can use yourself if you are in the area; can give to family or firends who live around here; or can donate for use with our "Donated Credit Account" for worthy causes.

Please see the attached video of this bookstore to visualize what you will be supporting. And visit our website to learn more about us and for more info on this campaign as it becomes available: www.luckydogbooks.com .

Thank you for your consideration and hopefully for your help.

UPDATE: Gift Certificates purchased during the current 30% Off Sale can be used during the sale at the sale prices. Only the 30% bonus certificate, that for a limited time comes with each purchase of gift certificates, is restricted to being used at our regular prices during the sale or afterwards.

The gift certificates for the initial contributors are going in the mail over night. So you should receive them soon if you have already participated.

Please also be aware of the 30% OFF Sale that we are running at all three bookstores as a part of this fund raising campaign.

Please also note that gift certificates received as part of this campaign can only be used during this sale at our regular prices since a 30% bonus was given in receiving them. So you may want to save these gift certificate for later use.

We have revamped out "Thank You" Rewards to replace previous items with bonus gift certificates.

So for a $15 contribution, you will now get a $20 gift certificate. And for a $50, you will get one for $65. And so forth.

We hope that this is of more interest to those of you thinking about contributing. If you had previously made a contribution and would still like the previous items, please drop us an email letting us know this.
