Around the Block: We Need Diverse Books

We’re building a community here at Kill Your Darlings Candle Company, one to which we contribute financially at your direction when you check out on our online store.

Throughout our preorder window, we’ll be introducing you to the organizations to which you can instruct us to contribute 10% of your order subtotal (or 5% once the window closes).

So let’s meet one of these organizations, We Need Diverse Books!

According to their website,

We Need Diverse Booksβ„’ is a… non-profit and a grassroots organization of children’s book lovers that advocates essential changes in the publishing industry.

Our aim is to help produce and promote literature that reflects and honors the lives of all young people [because we believe in] a world in which all children can see themselves in the pages of a book.

At Kill Your Darlings Candle Company, we’re proud to back organizations like We Need Diverse Books, which recognizes the need for inclusivity in the form of “all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, Native, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities.”

But we can only offer them our support with your help.

Our fledgling operation and great organizations like We Need Diverse Books would be grateful for your support.
