It’s been one month since our Riveted Readathon came to an end! ICYMI: we teamed up with Simon Pulse and the It Gets Better Project to spread a message of awareness and acceptance in celebration of Simon Curtis’s debut YA novel, Boy Robot. As part of the Readathon, we pledged to donate $5,000 to the It Gets Better Project to help them bring a message of hope to LGBTQ youth.
But that wasn’t all! We featured eight great free reads featuring LGBTQ characters for you to read during the Readathon and we vowed that if we reached 5,000 total reads by 11/11, we would DOUBLE our donation!
Did we make it?!?! Well….no. We didn’t.
BUT….we were CLOSE and so what else could we do but extend the Readathon for an additional week and guess what? We made it! We’re so thrilled to be able to make a donation of $10,000 to the It Gets Better Project this holiday season, we know it will help make a difference in the lives of young people that really need it. And if in the spirit of giving, you’d also like to make a donation to the It Gets Better Project, you can do so right here!
Thank you for your support of the Riveted Readathon and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
