All proceeds from The Trumpiad will be donated to the ACLU. You can also contribute directly to the ACLU by clicking here. And please keep in mind other worthy causes: Planned Parenthood, the International Rescue Committee, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, PEN America, Freedom House, Say Ah!, the Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights, and more.
Thanks to these bookstores that are currently selling the book: Phinney Books and Open Books (in Seattle); Literati and Nicola's (in Ann Arbor). For online orders, please visit The Waywiser Press.
We raised over $1300 for the ACLU during the last two weeks of April. Thanks to all who contributed! More updates* to come.
* September 28th: We're sending $553 to the ACLU today, which brings our Ann Arbor total to $1922. When publisher and distributor totals come in, we expect to be close to our goal of raising $3K. Thanks!
