We believe that every individual has the ability to make a difference in our world, and we want to give our readers a chance to bring attention to a cause that is important to them.

Every month, we will ask you to submit the charity of your choice (please send submissions to contact@beyondwords.life with “December Day it Forward” in the subject line). Tell us what the charity is about, why it is important to you, and anything else you feel is important to share with us.

Your submissions will be reviewed by bestselling author Sylvia Day and she will select one to personally contribute to for the month. The selected charity will be featured in the next month’s Day it Forward to bring more awareness to its cause and allow for readers of Beyond Words to donate as well.

The submission chosen for the month of November is from Cheaneulle DeRosier:

I would like to nominate the Red Panda Network! They work closely with zoos and people both in the US and overseas to help with the conservation efforts to save the Red Panda, which is not only endangered, buy considered a “blanket species” which means by protecting them, it’s also protecting several other species in the same habitat. It is near and dear to me because I have participated in fund raising for them every year for the last 5 or 6 years. They aren’t a very large organization yet, but they are making great strides, and every dollar counts. I know they would love this donation, and it would help so many red pandas and save them from habitat destruction and poaching. Thank you so much for your consideration.
