I started this. Please share and feel free to donate. Thank you.
Most people would agree that reading is the best way to attain knowledge. It’s our belief that nobody should ever be restricted to limited knowledge. People are beginning to acknowledge now more than ever before that our world is a diverse place. There’s no reason why this diversity should not be reflected in public libraries across the country.
It is our mission to ensure that everybody - regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation - has the availability in their local library to read and learn more about their culture, those who came before them, and the struggles they faced in the past as well as the struggles they face today. Our goal is to use reading to educate and empower the people who need it most.
We are at this time accepting books as donations as well as donations via PayPal to purchase books with. Every penny received goes directly to the cause, and every little bit is a step in the right direction.

Basically I will be using donations to buy libraries in small towns books about female studies, minorities’ histories, and homo/bisexuality.
The idea is that these kids/ people need sources to tell them that they aren’t alone.
