Hi, guys – Simon Spier here, and I’m pretty excited to dive into diversity on this freaking amazing blog. Sit back and relax while I tell you all about my Most Holy Awesome Pride Month Agenda. It's pretty epic if I do say so myself. Oh, wait, I just did.
So, here in the US, June is a pretty big deal for the LGBTQIA+ community. It’s National Pride Month, which means it’s an entire month dedicated to the utter badassery and amazingness of LGBTQIA+ kids, teens, and adults.
And let’s be clear. LGBTQIA+ people are pretty freaking badass and amazing.
So, in honor of Pride, I’m teaming up with two of my favorite Rebeccas with an epic scheme to support some of my favorite organizations. Want to participate and win some cool stuff? Here’s how!
1. Buy a shirt!
Look awesome and feel awesome by purchasing one of these extremely cool shirts, designed by Rebecca from Reading Wishes! 100% of profits will be donated to GLSEN (http://www.glsen.org)! Buy your shirt here!
2. or… Donate!
So, you’d rather be naked, but still want to support a LGBTQIA+ organization? Consider donating to one of my favorites!
- GLSEN: https://donate.glsen.org/page/contribute/Donate
- The Trevor Project: http://www.thetrevorproject.org/section/donate
- Human Rights Campaign: http://shop.hrc.org/membership-1.html
- GayYA Blog: http://www.gayya.org
No donation is too small – give what you can afford! And if you can’t afford a donation…
3. or… Share!
Spread the news by sharing this post! It’s a great way to raise awareness, whether or not you’re able to donate.
Don’t forget this step! If you buy a shirt, donate, or share this post, please send an email to email@example.com. This is totally on the honor system. WHY SHOULD YOU DO THIS? Because…
Everyone who buys a shirt, donates, or shares this post (AND emails Becky) will receive an actual deleted scene from the end of Simon Vs.! It’s a short email exchange between Blue and me, and it’s freaking embarrassing and romantic and UGH. Don’t hate us. (NOTE: SPOILERS. MAD SPOILERS. READ THE BOOK FIRST, OKAY?)
One random emailer will ALSO receive a signed copy of Adam Silvera’s More Happy Than Not AND a signed/personalized copy of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. Open internationally. Whoa.
Got it? Excellent.
Til next time,
*brain explodes from awesomeness* Thanks so much for reading and I hope you'll donate, buy a shirt and/or spread the word! Becky and I would so appreciate it! You can buy the shirt by clicking here.
