So many people, especially women, shy away from fundraising because they feel uncomfortable. At Girls Write Now, we’ve boldly set a goal of $100,000 as we gear up to double our numbers served. And we’ve empowered our entire community to take part. With just days left, we’re 75% of the way. Help take us home before the new year!
We kicked off our campaign with the 2015 Holiday Soirée where mentors, volunteers and board members wrote hundreds of letters to raise funds for the organization they love. We indulged in food, wine, and conversation, and won prizes as we wrote! Pen and paper are essential but Girls Write Now is no stranger to digital media. So we set up dozens of online pages where you can donate with the click. Friends old and new, local and global, are tweeting and posting to support our cause. We have been so humbled to see how far our message has reached!
There’s still time to join in the fun — and change girls’ lives. You can make a donation online, set up your own fundraising page, or write your own letters to friends, family, and colleagues. How about that first grade teacher who changed your life, your office mate who asked you to donate to her bikeathon last spring — even your own mentor! Tell them why Girls Write Now is important to you. Our 2015 Holiday Appeal Kit puts all our tips, tricks and resources at your fingertips. Girl by girl, we are changing the world, and we couldn’t do it without you. Thank you for your support!
