Everyone’s story matters.
When you donate to National Novel Writing Month, you help bring free creative writing programs to more than 500,000 kids and adults in approximately 100 countries, 2,000 classrooms, 600 libraries, and 500 NaNoWriMo regions every year.
You not only support people’s novel writing dreams, you help transform people into creators who see new possibilities in the world—and act on them. You spark a creative revolution.
That’s why we featured Abby’s story in our 2012 Annual Report—a story of the unquenchable desire to write, the perseverance required to overcome obstacles, and the amazing community of encouragement that supports audacious imaginative feats. Your donation spawns NaNoWriMo’s unique brand of transformative magic.
We Can’t Do It Without You: Investing in the Power of Writing
NaNoWriMo relies on individual donations to pay for things such as web hosting costs, pep talks, Come Write In resources, and classroom kits to help turn people into writing wizards.
Nearly half of our income comes from individual donations. We need to raise approximately $1.2 million in 2013 to put on NaNoWriMo and our other programs. Please donate and help us today.
