This holiday season (and really all year round), we encourage you to give back to your community.
There’s a wonderful arts community, a wonderful books community, and a wonderful comics community, and they all have organizations that fight censorship, provide for authors and artists when they’re struggling with health problems, give grants to creative works, organize events and programs, and provide resources for everyone in the community. We’re so lucky to have all of them behind us, supporting everything publishers do in the United States.
If you have anything to spare, consider giving to them! Helping out the organizations that support the community strengthens everyone, and gives us all a stronger literary landscape to exist within.
And — if you don’t have anything to spare, consider inquiring about volunteer work! Almost everyone could use some creative or design help — or even just a few hours of stuffing envelopes.
