This week Alix from @litjoycrate is in town visiting as we prepare for Leigh Bardugo’s Crooked Kingdom event this weekend and I am so grateful that #Bookstagram brought both Alix and Kelly into my life. They are both exactly my kind of weird. . So it’s with that in mind that I want to share something with you today that is especially close to my heart, even though it’s not quite book-related, (unless books have helped you learn to believe that superheroes exist in many different forms.) . Today I’m partnering with the #BeTheMatch campaign to help spread the word about what it means to become a bone marrow donor. I have had family members receive lifesaving transplants, and as my way to pay it forward, I donate blood often and am registered as a blood marrow donor. . I’m posting today in behalf of @Hope4Adam . A 31-year-old father of 3 who was recently diagnosed with a rare blood cancer. He’s in chemo, but needs a bone marrow transplant. Let’s help find him a match. . Social Native is donating $5 to Be The Match for every post. There are 20,000 plus blood disease patients looking for their match and the same number of family members praying that a match comes along. I’ve been there, and we got lucky with a successful transplant. So I’m forever grateful. That’s why this is so important to me to share today. . I encourage you to join the #bethematch registry. Maybe you can be someones super hero! . Tell me, who is your match? Is it a spouse, partner, best friend, child, pet?
