Hello fellow YA readers. It's been crazy busy lately, and I totally missed out on promoting about a Twitter chat that happened today with Laurie Halse Anderson. Though I missed talking about today's chat that took place earlier today, you can still follow #Speak4RAINN15 to check out what Laurie chatted about.
Why mention this? Because we are strong supporters of helping survivors of sexual abuse/assault. #Speak4RAINN15 is a joint effort both author Laurie Halse Anderson and the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) to raise $30,000 to honor the 15th anniversary of Laurie's book SPEAK & Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month. Together, we're working to help survivors of sexual assault — like Melinda from SPEAK — find their voices. Macmillan is matching donations dollar-for-dollar up to $30,000 and so just $15 helps fund and connect three survivors of sexual violence with the help they deserve.
Please be sure to check out the links listed to find out more. Help spread the word via #Speak4RAINN15
