They also taught a short funny dance to the kids that they performed together. We also collected books at every venue and at different places of the city but we received books from other parts of the country and from abroad as well. By the end of the campaign we had collected 3,500 books that were distributed among the school libraries and the funny choreography was performed by all school children at the campaign closing ceremony.
