Another Uprise Books plea

Acquaintances of mine have until Tuesday, Nov. 1st at 2:59am EDT (or 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 31st Pacific, my time) to collect $10,000 worth in pledges to Uprise Books, a project dedicated to getting banned and challenged books to young people. With 38 hours to go as I write this, Uprise Books has $8,824 in pledges.

Here's the pledge link: It's very simple to pledge.

If you've pledged before, you can pledge more. Yesterday I upped mine from $30 to $42. There are gift incentives if you want them and pledge certain amounts. As my bolder-speaking-than-me friend Gerald said on Twitter, "Help create fewer dumbasses and donate to @Uprisebooks. The rest of us thank you."

Added to add to the urgency: Uprise Books found out this morning that a major contributor, whose pledge made up 5% of last night's total, pulled said pledge.
