The comments made during the National Book Award ceremony this week just go to show how very important campaigns like #WeNeedDiverseBooks are. The good news: The funding goal of $100,000 has been reached! But we can keep donating and raising money to allow this organization to do even more to promote diversity in publishing.
Today, Daniel Handler donated $10,000 to the campaign as part of his apology to Jacqueline Woodson. He'll also match all donations TODAY ONLY, up to $100,000.
Donating the first time felt awesome. Donating a second time, knowing that my money is being matched by Handler, felt even better. I encourage you to see what you can spare to donate today as well. We could easily reach $200,000!
