Poems for Literacy
Me reading my poem at Smith College - 2013
As many of you know, I am a teacher and citizenship assistant at CNA. I love my work and am dedicated to my students and clients. Participating in 30 Poems in November is a joy!
I have no problems writing 30 poems during the month. However, what I do have difficulty with is raising the $500 I have pledged. I only work part-time, so my finances are limited. This is where YOU come in.
I am humbly asking if my friends and family could donate $5 or $10 to support my pledge.
Some people have asked me why am I doing this again - didn't they pledge last year? Yes, but CNA is a non-profit organization. We rely on grants and donations to support the work we do at CNA. Raising funds is a constant, with the 30 Poems in November our major fundraiser.
The community around us, which is rich in literary talent, is also involved. Many people - teachers, students, writers, single moms, dads who work other jobs - retired community members - are involved in the writing and fundraising. The fact that we have a poetry reading celebration at Smith College's Poetry Center is proof of the validity of our project. So, I can promise that your donations are going to a GREAT cause.
Thank you ahead of time for your support. I wouldn't be able to do this with YOU!
