JABberwocky Humble Bundle Wrap-Up

Last week saw the conclusion of the JABberwocky-curated Science-Fiction and Fantasy book bundle at Humble Bundle. We’d be remiss to go without mentioning our appreciation for the more than 3,000 readers who bought a bundle. Your support worked to raise over $8,000 for two great charities: the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and Girls Who Code. Even if you missed out on the bundle, we’d encourage you to support both organizations and the great work they’re doing. We’d also like to thank Humble Bundle for inviting us to curate a bundle with a selection of JABberwocky eBooks.

We hope you enjoy all the great books!

About the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF)
Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit organization protecting the freedom to read comics! Our work protects readers, creators, librarians, retailers, publishers, and educators who face the threat of censorship. We monitor legislation and challenge laws that would limit the First Amendment. We create resources that promote understanding of comics and the rights our community is guaranteed. Every day we publish news and information about censorship events as they happen. We are partners in the Kids’ Right to Read Project and Banned Books Week. Our expert legal team is available to respond to First Amendment emergencies at a moment’s notice. CBLDF is a lean organization that works hard to protect the rights on which our community depends. For more information, visit www.cbldf.org.

About Girls Who Code
Girls Who Code is on a mission to close the gender gap in technology and to change the image of what a programmer looks like and does. In 1995, 37% of computer scientists were women. Today, it’s only 24%. If we do nothing, in ten years the number of women in computing will decrease to just 22%. Computing is where the jobs are — and where they will be in the future, but fewer than 1 in 5 computer science graduates are women. So Girls Who code are building the largest pipeline of future female engineers in the United States. To learn how you can help them, check out their website.
