This month, your patronage of FLAPPERHOUSE will do even more than just support indie lit weirdos… throughout September 2018, we’ll be donating 50% of our sales to RAICES, to help provide legal assistance to underserved immigrant families.
So if you buy any subscriptions or books or zines (like our forthcoming Fall 2018 issue, currently available for pre-order), we’ll donate half that money to RAICES. (To learn more about the cause, check out RAICESTexas.org.)
In addition, we’ll be taking donations for RAICES at our September 26 reading, which is part of Reading for RAICES, a collaborative fundraiser of over 20 NYC-area reading series:
Thanks to Katie Rainey & Devin Kelly of the Dead Rabbits, and everyone else who’s been organizing Reading for RAICES– and we hope you’ll help us all help some folks who’ll really need it this Fall…
