Adding to the sweetness of this book is the fact that 75% of proceeds are donated to Get-Lit, a leading nonprofit presenter of literary performance, education, and teen poetry programs. Their goal is to inspire teens to read, thereby leveling the playing field between rich and poor, mainstream and marginalized, and bringing previously unheard voices to the forefront.
The authors of this anthology thank you in advance for doing your part to support this important literacy program.

As a former educator, I am proud and excited to help promote anything that helps our children to become more literate and to learn to love reading and writing as much as I do! Their mission:
Using the power of literature to change lives.Founded in 2006 in Los Angeles, Get Lit is LA’s leading nonprofit presenter of literary performance, education, and teen poetry programs. Our organization has started a movement of young people, picking up a book, often, for the first time in their lives. At Get Lit we are committed to providing youth with as many opportunities as possible to develop a love of literature, poetry and language, and to present their voices in a variety of ways, including public performance, printed anthologies, and here on line. We believe that by inspiring a nation of teens to read, we are leveling the playing field between rich and poor, mainstream and marginalized, bringing previously unheard voices to the front.
