Sometimes I feel like I run out of ideas of how to help. Donate, volunteer, talk, write letters, calls, vote, caucus, protest and it still seems like not enough. It can be hard to keep the frustration from boiling over. I'm learning to better channel this into creativity that can double as help. This is my first direct attempt at this and I hope you'll be a part of it with me. We've put together a digital edition of my story The Rain Drop Girl with artwork by Ansley Kolisnyk to raise money for the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund. They have a good reputation and it seems to me that our planet and scientists really need all of our help right now.
All of the money made from these editions (after the sites get their fees) will be donated to the organization. With Earth Day this week and the March for Science happening this seemed a good time to put this together. I try not to ask anyone to do this at all but if anyone would be willing to repost this I would be so appreciative as I would really like for us all to collectively donate a nice sum to the organization. Yes I know the price might seem high for a short story but the sites get a big cut and unlike most other things I write I am pretty sure most of you will really like this story. Especially if you're a tiny bit goth. Or a tiny bit drizzly. Thank you from my soggy grey raincloud heart.
