This week we asked you to meet our goal of donating 1,000 It Gets Better books to schools and libraries.  In a matter of hours hundreds of donations came in and now we’re proud to report 1,127 books have been donated to date.

Thanks to over 1,000 generous donations, LGBT youth will have access to a book that can truly show them that life does get better, as well as the tools to get through the most difficult times.

But we’re not done yet. You can still be a part of this campaign and help spread this powerful message and give hope to LGBT youth:

Make a $25 donation and we’ll send a copy of It Gets Better to a school or library of your choice.

We created the It Gets Better book because not all students have access to YouTube or can reach us online. The book includes essays and new material from more than 100 contributors including celebrities, religious leaders, politicians, parents, educators, youth just out of high school, and many more.

The above map includes the data of 674 fulfilled book orders as of April 25, 2011.  We’ll update the map after our second fulfillment distribution.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at info[at]
