Today I joined forces with NaNoWriMo to raise money in order to keep their wonderful programs going far into the future. The Office Of Letters and Light, which runs NaNoWriMo and its programs including Camp NaNoWriMo in April and July and the Young Writers’ Program, is a nonprofit organization that relies on donor support to continue sponsoring creativity around the world. For more information, visit NaNoWriMo.org to learn about the programs. If you want to help further creativity for all ages, please donate here: http://www.stayclassy.org/fundraise?fcid=385113
A few statistics from 2013:
310,095 participants started the month of November as auto mechanics, out-of-work actors, and middle school English teachers. They walked away novelists.
651 volunteer Municipal Liaisons guided 595 regions on six continents.
89,500 students and educators told their stories with the Young Writers Program.
650 libraries opened their doors to novelists through the Come Write In program.
And in 2014, 55,774 Campers tackled a writing project during Camp NaNoWriMo.
Thank you on behalf of every writer who participated last year!
