There is something pretty incredibly happening today over at Diversereader and it runs until 11.59PM EST on 1st May.
224 authors, bloggers, and reviewers have agreed to make donations in an attempt to raise money for charities across the world. We are hoping that this week, rather than spending money on books, you'll consider donating that money to a worthy charity instead. If you're not able to donate, please share the charity's links, and tell your friends. It's amazing what the power of our community can do.
Once you've donated or spread the word about your LGBT charity, head on over to the LGBTQ Push Back Charity Giveaway here: http://diversereader.blogspot.com/2015/04/lgbtq-push-back-charity-giveaway.html
Leave a comment letting them know what you did. That's all you need to do to be entered into the contest. Once the contest closes, Rafflecopter will randomly pick winners from the entrants and they will be matched up with donors on a first-come, first-served basis.
Three fundraisers have been set up to counter the hateful effects of Indiana’s SB 101. #Pizza4Equality is aiming to match the money raised by *that* pizza parlor, with all donations going to Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Fund. Another fundraiser is aiming to raise $100,000 for Indiana Youth Group. Finally, Planting Peace is trying to raise $100,000 to provide beds for homeless LGBT people.
You can choose one of those, or another LGBT charity of your choice. Every little bit counts!
