"The Carl Brandon Society has released a statement on donations made on June 13th and 14th...the short version of it is that on those days, the society received:
* Over $8,200 for its general fund;
* Over $5,000 for its Octavia E. Butler Memorial Scholarship;
* Over $3,600 for the Con or Bust initiative (which I did not pledge match for here, but which I wholeheartedly support, so, w00t!).
So, all told, around $16,900 raised for the Carl Brandon Society and the programs it supports in a couple of days. Those donations will now go to help an organization whose mission is �to increase racial and ethnic diversity in the production of and audience for speculative fiction.�
And extra-special thanks with a big fat cherry on the top to John Scalzi.
