“Rebuild community. Bring back the essentials that make it whole. I do not mean having a Duane Reade but stores that have purpose and is in touch with the pulse of the neighborhood. This campaign marks the beginning of change that no developer’s direct marketing studies can truly comprehend. ¡VIVA Cultura!”
"Independent bookstores enrich and bring a sense of community to every neighborhood. I’m honored to be a part of this inspirational mission."
“Educate a man and you educate an individual. Educate a woman and you educate a family.” — A.Cripps. To which I add: Open a bookstore and you educate a community. Help educate the community of East Harlem and beyond by donating to Aurora’s 40K in 40 Days campaign!
“If anyone can bring their dream to life, Aurora can. Half-dynamo, half fierce, brilliant Chicana, I look forward to walking into La Casa Azul Bookstore. If you are on the fence about contributing — trust that there is no better stewart for your money. Give with confidence! Aurora and her business will make us all proud.”
"Es con gran amor y orgullo que hoy aporto este granito de arena por esta gran causa. Aurora admiro tu valentia y estoy lista para ayudarte en lo que pueda por ver nuestra primera tienda de libros de autores latinoamericanos aqui en nuestra comunidad. Los libros son la fortaleza del pueblo y abren las puertas a un nuevo mundo. En verdad eres el cambio que quieres y queremos ver en Harlem."
“Books that tell our stories make us read and we want to read more to know. Books that motivate us to want to know more lead us to thinking about a story we can create to tell others. IT ‘S KNOWLEDGE PASSED ON, IT’S HISTORY. The books at LA CASA AZUL BOOKSTORE will give us all a desire to read and learn and know more. Thank you Aurora"
