Weʼre raising £1,000 to Help The T&Coffee Book Club fund accessible books for LGBTQ+ People
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
When we announced our new book club is starting in Feb 2021, we realised that not everyone would feel able to #GetInvolved
Well, we didn't like that idea so, we had a think about what we could do to make this as accessible as possible for as many people as we can. To try and help more people have access to the books our members have selected, we are offering to support people who are unable to afford the books, people who would prefer an accessible copy and to support our members to share their libraries if they can. Even with the support we have though, we still need your help...
Whilst we'd love to say we could buy everyone all of the books in any format but, we simply don't have the funding to do it. So we're welcoming all donations which could support this project and help to give members a chance to pick up a copy of the books they voted for. If you have any spare copies of any of the books, access to an audio book or even just want to help buy a copy for someone, please let us know and we will make sure your donations go to good use.
We're here to help so, if you want to get involved with the book club and have an issue getting hold of the right copy for you, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do what we can.
The first 5 Books have already been selected by the members and include:
- The Hitch-hikers Guide To The Galaxy - Douglas Adams
- The Little Prince - Antione de Saint-Exupery
- We Are Legion, We Are Bob - Dennis E. Taylor
- Trans Like Me - C N Lester
- Transgender History (2nd Edition) - Susan Stryker
Our members are still voting on the order we will go through these books, which we should know soon. Follow us on the socials at @TnCoffeeLGBT of visit www.TnCoffeeLGBT.com to stay up to date with the latest news on the project.
