This is a day that means a lot to me. Spirit Day, Purple Shirt Day, Support LGBTQ Youth Day, however you want to call it, it’s a day that both reminds me of how my oldest child struggled with coming out, with bullying at his school, and how many kids around the world face this every day. It also gives me hope, because my second child–while still facing the struggles that so many youth face as LGBTQ–and her girlfriend faced a wave of acceptance.
It gets better? It’s GETTING better, but that’s because of supportive folks like yourself and GLAAD’s drive to educate the public.
So here’s where you come in: my publisher, an LGBTQ publishing house, is not only dropping the price of all books today by 25%, they will be donating $1 to GLAAD for every book, print or electronic, sold today.
And I’m matching dollar for dollar for any of my books purchased. That’s a price cut and $2 to a terrific organization, their purpose to help make life better for the queer youth of today and tomorrow. All day, until midnight PST in the US, so grab my book, someone else’s book, get involved with IP’s direct donation link, just show your SPIRIT!
Edit: Aww, heck, let’s throw in BITTER SPRINGS, too. All pre-sale purchases today will add to my Dollar Matching. Let’s get to raising funds!
