sylvia day day it forward

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 . Tell us as much or as little as you like, such as what the charity is about, why it is important to you, and anything else you wish to share with us – we want to know all about it! (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 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 October 2017 are the Las Vegas Victim’s Fund and United for Puerto Rico/Unidos por Puerto Rico.


LV victims fundThe Las Vegas Victims’ Fund is in place to assist the victims of the tragic Las Vegas shooting that occurred on October 1st, 2017 at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on the Las Vegas Strip. Funds will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific Las Vegas mass shooting​.
