Cassandra Clare donated the book to the Trevor Project, which will be giving it away randomly to someone who donates.
So — and this was a bit of a long game — I brought a copy of City of Bones to the movie set with me, and had all the actors sign it for the charity. It is, as far as I know, the only copy of City of Bones out there right now that everyone in the cast has signed.*
All you need to do is donate $10 to the Trevor Project, “the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.”
For everyone that donates $10, they will receive a snippet from the upcoming first installment of The Banes Chronicles: What Really Happened in Peru (April 16).
The fundraiser, which is open now, will last through April 2.
Be sure to head over the fundraiser page and donate to a great cause and enter to win a currently one-of-a-kind autographed book.
