Charity

Every year, Writing for Charity chooses different charities to donate our raised funds to. Our #1 goal is to get books into the hands of children, both locally and internationally.

2015 Charities
The funds raised by Writing for Charity in 2015 will be used to help two charities that were recommended by authors presenting at the conference:

First Book
First book is determined to see that all children, regardless of their economic conditions, can achieve more in school and in life through access to an ongoing supply of new books.

With the help of their partners, donors, and dedicated volunteers, they have provided more than 120 million new books to schools and programs serving children in need.

We Need Diverse Books
We Need Diverse Books works with An Open Book Children's Literacy Foundation, First Book, and the National Education Association to bring diverse books and authors into disadvantaged schools. They also support diverse authors and provide education about how to include diversity in classrooms.

  1. Hello Guys, it's good to know that there's a blog like this who are using their gift (writing skills) to benefit the children. I want to be a part of your group if I will be given a chance. Thanks!
