NaNoWriMo Needs You

It was with a heavy heart our heroine read an email from Chris Baty of the Office of Letters and Light, dear Reader. OLL is parent to NaNoWriMo, Script Frenzy, the Young Writers group and so many more programs.

Please donate

Donations this year did not cover the year’s operating costs. Without meeting those costs, they’ll have to cut some of the programs they run. It would leave many writers without the learning and experience they crave. What if it’s one of your programs?

I don’t have much. I usually give myself a little present each holiday season as my family is strapped. This year, my gift to myself was another donation to OLL. Please, even $10 makes a difference. (Although $50 makes one, too!)

And just think: you get one of those cool halos on your profile photo.

Thank you.

    You’re absolutely right on all counts there Jesse and I do indeed sport one of those little halos. Though my contribution wasn’t much, it was what I could do. I heartily agree that all of we who have taken part in NaNo should do what ever we can to help support them as they have supported us.

    Thanks much for this post,

      “… support them as they have supported us.” Nail on the head.

      Bringing awareness of the issue to people in the community is also a donation of a sort, I think. I hope. Beyond my little donations to OLL, mentioning it on Twitter and here on the blog is my way of giving a little more back. Thank you for your continued support of NaNo and OLL, John. It’s important. We all give what we can. I hope. (again)

      Take care,
