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 important to them.

Every month, readers are encouraged to submit the charity of his/her choice by emailing us. (You can also easily submit a charity on one of our social media posts!)

Your submissions will be reviewed by bestselling author Sylvia Day and she will select one or more 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 learn about and possibly donate to help its cause, too.


The charities Sylvia has chosen for the month of November 2017 are Vetsports and the Elephant Sanctuary.

Sylvia will be donating $750 to each charity, and you can, too, here (Vetsports) and here (Elephant Sanctuary).
