Uprise Books Project will get banned & censored books into hands of teens in poverty. But they need help.

The Uprise Books Project is going to get banned and censored books into the hands of underprivileged teens, free of charge. They hope to increase literacy, inspire teens and get them reading and thinking, and end the cycle of poverty (through literacy). I love the idea! But they need our help. I’ve made a donation. Will you? Even $5 will help. I think they have a worthy cause. And this is the perfect time to support them–during Banned Book Week! And beyond. 🙂

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
