Last week, the Pages for Change campaign reached its $3,000 tipping point goal. Pages for Change addresses the lack of resources for survivors of rape and abuse by donating books on these topics to public and college libraries. It is a project initiated by the Middle Way House, a non-profit domestic violence program and rape crisis center in Bloomington, Indiana. The organization has developed 20 key books on these topics and, of the 19 libraries in Middle Way House’s service area, only 2 have more than 4 books from that list. All donations raised through this campaign will be used to purchase and donate books to each of the 19 partner libraries with bookplates containing shelter information in each book. The tipping point goal will help to purchase an abbreviated book set for each library, but the $9,000 total fundraising goal will allow the purchase of a full set of books for each library. There are still 9 days to help Middle Way House reach its total funding goal for Pages for Change. The $9,000 is absolutely within reach—let’s get a full set of these books into each and every one of Middle Way House’s partner libraries!
