November 28 is Giving Tuesday, a day to celebrate generosity and to remember that there’s more to the holidays than consumerism and commercialization. This year, the Tiptree Award is joining in this national day of generosity and giving.
How can you participate?
- Consider making a donation to the Tiptree Award. Thanks to a group of donors, all donations made from now through the end of the year will be matched, up to $2400. Your generosity will be doubled. If we make our match, we’ll raise $4800 for the award —over half of our annual budget.
- If you haven’t already, share the latest Tiptree winner and honor list with friends on social media. (What could be more generous than sharing a good book?)
- If you’re shopping for holiday gifts, remember the Tiptree store. Our new edition of The Bakery Men Don’t See has many recipes that are perfect for holiday baking.
- Help us get the word out on social media via Twitter and Facebook. (If you haven’t joined the Tiptree Facebook page or followed us on Twitter, now’s a good time.)
Events of the last year make it clear that our society still has a long way to go regarding gender issues. At the Tiptree Award, we think that the first step in moving forward is to imagine a new world, one that is feminist, decolonial, anti-racist, anti-ableist, anti-fascist, and supportive of all gender identities. We see the Award and the Tiptree Fellowships as investments in the imagination we need to create that future. With your help, we’ll raise the funds we need to continue supporting and promoting speculative fiction that imagines worlds that are very different from the one we live in today.
Thanks for your support!
