All Stories Belong On Our Shelves Charity Enamel Pin
$1,000+ has been raised so far for the cause!
Details: Something that is so important in developing young readers is the ability for those readers to see themselves in the characters that are represented on the pages. For many children, they aren't included in the majority of books they can find on the shelves today. Furthermore, if they are included, chances are those books aren't receiving the same marketing exposure as other books and those children (or educators and parents) may not be aware the books even exist. This is a huge pitfall of the publishing community as it stands now. While changes are being made, there are ALWAYS room for improvements to be made and more opportunities to give diverse readers books for them, written by people who intimately understand their stories.
In alignment with our Giving Back initiative, we want to help make an impact on the publishing industry and help get more diverse writers the recognition they deserve, and put their books in the hands of the people who need it most.
100% of profits from this pin are transparently donated to We Need Diverse Books which works to get more diverse books published and in the hands of children. They accomplish this through funding diverse writers and illustrators; promoting and donating published diverse books to educators, parents, and librarians; and mentoring diverse publishing professionals in how to advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
