What is this?
This community is a fandom auction where people can offer to write original and fandom works, make art, bake, make crafts, share skills, etc. in exchange for donations to to support the incredible sex education website Scarleteen
Scarleteen has been the premier online sexuality resource for young people worldwide since 1998. Countless members of various fandoms have used information from Scarleteen when making fanworks, as well as in our own lives.
Scarleteen has consistently provided free inclusive, comprehensive and supportive sex education, information and support to millions of young people every year.
What you might not know is that Scarleteen is the highest ranked online young adult sexuality resource but also one of the least funded and that the youth who need them most are also the least able to donate. You might not know that they have done all they have with a budget typically lower than the median annual household income in the U.S. You might not know they have provided the services they have to millions without any federal, state or local funding and that they are fully independent, grassroots media which depends on public support to survive and grow.How does it work?
