Purpose of The Project

I'm raising £2500 to buy lots of hard copy books for University of Chichester Business School. We’re the “digital natives” but for final year business students doing research projects books are best!  

A Bit About Myself

My Name is Karen Zulu. I am in my final year  at the University of Chichester Business School, studying BA (Hons) Business &Management Programme

My Story

I decided on this project because I have problems using e-books online. So do my friends. It’s really hard to write your assignment and read a book on the same computer. Especially, if you have a laptop with a 13inch screen. Check out how small the book and your document end up if you are wondering.

Another issue is broadband speed, and you live in a shared flat. Which most students do. Reading an e-book and turning pages takes a lot of time and you can be easily distracted and start looking at other things while you're online waiting for the ebook to move on. We like to mark section and pages in research books, and we have more and more online books and fewer physical copies in the libraries.

The other reason I want to raise money to buy more books is because it will encourage students to come to the library and use the library resources more, socialise and help each other. Being together is not only important to me, but all the other business students who will come and study at the University in the future. 

Where will the money go? 

If I am successful enough to reach my hit maximum which is £2500 I will buy the books on Amazon and add them in the library.

·         98% of the money will buy books

·         2% of the money will be used to post the letters that will be written by final year undergraduates students, updates of the project and University of Chichester Business School, to the donor as a way of saying thank you

Note:  Even If you have scribbled on your old text book you can still donate it to the Business School because you would have helped someone gain knowledge!!

Fact: 100 Business Students doing Management Project/Business Research will benefit from your good will!!


Hey, we have some fab rewards to thank everyone who donates whatever the amount is! A social thank you on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn and you will also receive a letter or poster from one of the undergraduates who are in their final year/benefactor telling you about their experience so far and how the book/s you've donated are helping students get good grades, and how it has improved the quality of learning at the University.
