Help students at the University of Louisville fund a children's book for LGBTQ families in Greece. There is currently no literature for children of same-sex couples in Greece to better understand their own situation but Rainbow Families, a non-profit organization in Athens, Greece is working to change that. Students recently traveled to Greece through the University's first-ever study abroad trip and met with Rainbow Families to learn about LGBTQ life. We were inspired by the group's dedication to raising awareness about different kinds of families and decided to help them publish this important and critical book so children have the opportunity to see themselves and their families in their reading.

Rainbow Families is working solely on donations and needs our help to make this beautiful book accessible to children. They have to pay for publication costs as well as purchasing enough books to distribute them across Athens and other parts of Greece. Every dollar raised will help them succeed in their mission. The more money we raise for them, the more books we can publish for children in Greece!

I started this project back over the summer to help with getting a children's book published in Greece for children of "non-traditional" families (LGBT and single parents). We are looking to wrap up this project within the next few weeks and can use all of the money we can get. Check out the website and if you are able to, donate! Everything we can send will help to change the LGBT community abroad.
