Hello. In honor of Charlie Cochet’s brilliance, I’m making a page on my site to help share the idea behind her Making a Difference page. Sometimes we not only want to read a great story, but we would like to help others. There are ways to do both! What you’ll find below is a list (those I know of) of authors / books / artists / etc. that donate some to all of their proceeds to various charities. Those charities are homeless LGBT Youth centers, LGBT Community centers, Help Lines, and more.
When you purchase one of the titles below, you are helping others, no matter how big or small. Every bit helps! Thank you.
