Good morning everyone. Today I am over at 50-by-50, in an interview about writing. I’d love to have you come and read.
My thoughts are about 5% of your click’s import, however. Colleen Wainwright, who works as a marketing consultant, and writes the blog, “Communicatrix,” is raising money for a non-profit called WriteGirl. Her goal is to raise $50,000 by September 13th, which is, not coincidentally, her 50th birthday.
She is doing this via a veritable hailstorm of activity. Writing 50 posts, here. Promising to shave her head when she raises the $50,000. Giving away poems, computer wallpapers, mixtapes, etc. Your part is very simple.
Go here. Donate money. Receive thanks and perhaps a perk.
Wait. I haven’t told you what WriteGirl is. Which underscores the importance of learning to write for success in so many aspects of life. Unless you can ask clearly, people are unlikely to give you what you need.
WriteGirl supports high school girls in all aspects of writing, by monthly workshops, and one-on-one mentoring in the craft and industry by professional women writers. As you can imagine, they send a lot of girls on to college. 10 years old, the organization was recently named California Non-Profit of the Year.
As a former girl, a writer of sorts, and one who loves nothing more than mentoring the young, I support the cause and the organization. You might, if it aligns with your own concerns, do the same. Thank you in advance for your consideration. I, again, am here.
Colleen, thank you very much.
