SUBMIT HERE: (Two great causes and foolks in ned of your help)

1) Greetings Friends and Co-Conspirators,
 I m working to place my book How I Learned to Snap in 1300 high schools, LGBT college resource centers, public libraries and LGBT youth groups across the United States. I d love your help. For less than $10 a copy, we can get the book into hundreds of schools and libraries. This sounds very Sally Struthers but stay with me.
 My book How I Learned to Snap is a memoir about being openly gay in a small Virginia high school. The book was named an Honor Book by the American Library Association and was a finalist for the Virginia Book Award and a Lambda Literary award. Over the past five years I ve received thousands of letters and emails from teenagers and educators saying the book was helpful to them. Since the book was released in paperback, the remaining hardcover copies have been in my publisher s storage unit. Typically, the fate of hardcover editions is to get recycled after the paperback comes out. I am a compulsive double Aquarius, so I came up with a sunnier, more creative solution.
 I ve assembled a mailing list of high school gay straight alliances, LGBT youth organizations and campus queer resource centers. I ll be working with organizations like Campus Pride, GLSEN and P-FLAG to make sure the books are well-placed. I just donated 50 copies to an LGBT student leadership summer camp and am preparing a huge mailing to queer youth drop-in groups all over the country.
 The cost of the books, packing, shipping and storage comes to around $8 per book. I want to raise $10,000 to cover my costs. Please consider sending $10, $20,  $50, $100, whatever you can.
 Please send donations to:
 Snap Into Schools

 2261 Market St. #125
 San Francisco, CA 94114
 Please make checks payable to Kirk Read. For donations $250 and above, contact me first and I can set you up to get a tax deduction if you need one.
 For credit card donations, go to  and send it to my account, which has the username
 If you know of a town or place that would be a good home for a book, please send along the address and contact person. Maybe your hometown library or high school or college alma mater!
 Please share this email widely. I appreciate it.
 Much love,

2) Dear Friends & Supporters:
For more than a decade, thousands of you from all over the world have spoken out about the grave injustice in West Memphis, where three men, including my husband, were wrongfully convicted of murder. You have spoken out to raise money and awareness; you have brought widespread attention to this case and refused to let people forget that three men are in prison for a crime they did not commit; and you have made a difference, through creativity, passion and sheer force of will. The families of the West Memphis Three (Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley and Jason Baldwin) can never thank you enough.
Today, I am writing to you because we urgently need your help. Whether you have supported and followed the case over the years, or you are just learning about this tragic injustice, we need you to step up today.
Over the last two years, compelling new  evidence has been discovered by DNA tests, forensic pathologists and investigators. The lawyers are working to assemble what will be a dynamic appeal; one that will change forever the way this case has been perceived, and will prove once and for all -- the innocence of the three convicted. The filing will include new evidence that is backed up with factual, hard science; a miraculous development in this error-ridden case.
Your support over the years has enabled us to achieve unbelievable progress. We're now asking for your help to put all of this effort to work in the courts. We need the resources that will enable our experts, lawyers and investigators to work full time over the next couple of months, so the appeal can be filed as quickly as possible.
Time is running out, and we need your help. Please make checks payable to the Damien Echols Defense Fund, PO Box 1216, Little Rock, AR 72203. You can also donate online, through PayPal  to:
If you have ever considered donating, the time is NOW. Cases like this take years and cost millions of dollars. We are in the final lap toward overturning these convictions and finally securing justice, but we simply cannot do it without the money it takes to bring all of the science and expertise and investigation into court so that the truth can finally come out.
I am not an expert on the law, science, the criminal justice system or the art of fundraising and organizing. What I know for sure is that these three men are innocent, and that we can prove it if we have the money it will take in the next four weeks to file the appeal that's been more than 10 years in the making. Please help us, and please know that your support has already gotten us farther than many people thought possible.
Thanks very much,
Lorri Davis and the Damien  Echols Legal Team


XOXO - have a beautiful and creative day
