First Book logo (1)At Riot New Media Group, we’ve built charity into our DNA. We donate 2% of all revenue to charity–no funny math, just total revenue x .02–and we invite our community to participate. Earlier this year, we asked you to nominate and vote on your favorite organizations to be our 2015 charitable partner.

We are thrilled to announce today that First Book won the vote and will be receiving our donation of 2% of all 2015 revenue. We’ll also be finding other creative ways to work with them throughout the year and to share their work with you. Check out the info below, and visit their website to donate and get involved.
