From Macmillan Publishing:
#Speak4RAINN15 is a joint effort with SPEAK author Laurie Halse Anderson and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) to raise $30,000 in honor of the 15-year anniversary of SPEAK and Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. Together, we're working to help survivors of sexual assault — like Melinda from SPEAK — find their voices. Macmillan is matching donations dollar-for-dollar up to $30,000 and so just $15 helps fund and connect three survivors of sexual violence with the help they deserve.
Join the #Speak4RAINN15 conversation on twitter this Thursday, April 24 at 3pm EST / 12pm PSTwith Laurie Halse Anderson using the #Speak4RAINN15 hashtag. We'll be tweeting to raise awareness and encourage donations for this important cause.
You can visit rainn.org/speak to learn more about the campaign and how you can help survivors find their voices. If you're unable to join the chat but are interested in helping, then every tweet, post, or tumble using #Speak4RAINN15 and leading to RAINN's website helps raise awareness and is greatly appreciated.
For over 15 years, Melinda's story has given thousands of survivors the courage to come forward. Please join us, Laurie, and RAINN in showing other survivors that recovery is possible
