The Great Write Off will take place September 23-27, 2013. So when you ask people you know who support writing for donations for your charity, you can tell them that you will be working on your writing in support of this particular cause on those days, and that they will help you be at your most productive. We hope this is motivating for you as a writer!
We have found that asking people for flat donations works best, but you can decide how much your writing is worth–$20 for ten pages? What would that work out to hourly at your writing pace? It’s up to you—please know that the organizations involved in this fundraiser will appreciate all the support you can drum up.
Your sponsors will appreciate getting a report on your progress—consider sharing the work you produce on these days with them, or point them toward this website so they can watch the fundraiser unfold.
Thank you for participating—now get writing!
