If you’ve ever read the website Scarleteen—or even heard of it—you probably know that it’s the best damn sex education website for teenagers out there. Well, they’re having a fund-raising drive right now. If you want kids to get responsible sex education when they log in to their computer and start looking around, and you don’t want them swimming in a sea of unrealistic porn that is intended to entertain and not educate, then please consider giving to Scarleteen.

Here’s how to do it:

* To donate to Scarleteen by credit card, online check or via a PayPal account: click here and choose the button at the top of that page for the donation amount and style you prefer.

* To donate by check or money order directly to Scarleteen: make checks payable to Scarleteen and send to: Scarleteen, 1752 NW Market Street #627, Seattle, WA, 98107.

* If you would like your donation to be tax-deductible: you can donate by check or money order through The Center for Sex and Culture, a fiscal sponsor of Scarleteen online here. To mail a tax-deductible donation, make your check out to The Center for Sex and Culture, writing “For Scarleteen” in the memo. Mail that to: The Center for Sex and Culture, c/o Carol Queen, 2215-R Market Street PMB 455, San Francisco, CA, 94114. They will send a written acknowledgment of your donation to you for tax purposes, and will send us donations made to them on our behalf after deducting a very reasonable percentage.
