Help Support 826LA, a Non-Profit Writing & Tutoring Center for Students

Help Support 826LAWhy would I be happy if you haven’t bought How to Overcome Heartbreak Without Projectile Vomiting yet?

Because June is the perfect time to get a copy for only $5!

Half of all June book sales will benefit 826LA, a non-profit writing and tutoring center for students ages 6 to 18.

After-school tutoring, creative writing workshops, and field trips are some of the on-site activities 826LA offers that are all free to the communities they serve. There are two Los Angeles locations: Mar Vista and Echo Park.

I’ve volunteered with 826LA since 2011, so when I prepared to release How to Overcome Heartbreak Without Projectile Vomiting: A Guide for Cynical Hopeless Romantics, I wanted a portion of the sales to go to the organization.

Since the book is digital, and you can download it instantly, you don’t have to be a local to get it or wait for anything to be sent to you in the mail.

Your quick-and-easy purchase will help support endeavors that make learning fun for students.

Plus, I hear children are our future.

Here’s a portrait a student drew for me at a workshop last year:

During the workshop, Grandchildren of the Plumed Serpent, students looked at family legends and origin stories as portrayed in ancient Mesoamerican codices. After learning about the legacy of Quetzalcoatl and the storytelling techniques of ancient Mexico, students created their own collage-style family timelines that detailed major events in their lives and incorporated symbols of their hero selves.

To make sure I didn’t feel left out of her project, one of my students decided to design a symbol for me, as well.

826 is a national organization, so if you’re interested in volunteering, check out one of the chapters near you: 826 Boston, 826 Chicago, 826 DC, 826 Michigan, 826 NYC, 826 Seattle, and 826 Valencia (the original branch in San Francisco).

Thank you for helping me support wonderful people doing important work!
