Stories Are Not for Sale

In her latest blog for The Huffington Post, LitWorld's Founder, Pam Allyn, addresses the importance of integrity in the humanitarian field. She stands in fierce opposition to activists, foundations, journalists and non-profits who claim that manipulating individual stories is okay when it "helps" people. Sharing inauthentic stories is never okay. At LitWorld we take a tremendous amount of care with the authenticity of stories and storytelling. We cherish those stories, and we protect and defend them. The truth in them is the beacon of hope that every child has. Taking that away harms all the work that non-profits do and puts at risk all the true stories that need to be told.
