I noticed today a few things, but I’m going to call attention to John Scalzi’s matching of pledges to the Carl Brandon Society, to either the Carl Brandon Society itself or to the Octavia E. Butler Memorial Scholarship Fund, up to $1000. The Carl Brandon Society was created to support increasing the diversity in both the authorship and readership of SF&F.
If you do donate, please visit Scalzi’s post and make a mention in the comments.
I now have an announcement of my own to make—I will be a second matcher up to $1000 of any pledges made in Scalzi’s comments.
Additionally, if you donate to Con-or-Bust, which helps people of color/non-white people to attend SFF conventions, I will match your pledges (made in the comments on this post) up to $500, separate from the matching for the Carl Brandon Society / Octavia E. Butler Memorial Scholarship Fund.
If you do donate to Con-or-Bust, please make note of it in my comments.
Comments here are only to donate to Con-or-Bust, please do not use them for anything else; extraneous comments will be filtered out.
