This came in my email today…..
We’re thrilled to announce a special holiday edition of our Write for a Cause book drive for children.
We are working with FirstBook.org and HarperCollins Publishing House to equip hundreds of childhood literacy programs across the country with age-appropriate books this coming year – and we need your help!
Taking Part is Easy: For every eight articles written and approved from December 1 through December 15 two things will happen:
1) Demand Media will fund one new book that FirstBook.org will distribute to children in need.
2) HarperCollins Publishing House will match that book donation, doubling the number of books in the hands of little ones all across the country.
Be a Part of Something Big: In the previous three Write for a Cause campaigns, our dedicated writers and editors together donated more than 41,000 new children’s books. Combining your creative talent and our philanthropic partnerships, this edition of Write for a Cause promises to be our most successful to date. To learn more about those on the receiving end of the book drive, watch this video from our friends at FirstBook.
Have Fun Doing It: To make sure everyone wins by Writing for a Cause, we will be awarding daily prizes to participants. Past prizes have included the Complete New Yorker Gift Set, autographed editions of popular books and recognition in a widely distributed press release. Every article you write is a chance to win.
We urge you to pledge some of your time and creativity this December and make a difference in the lives of thousands of underserved children.
♥♥This is my favorite thing about my job. Demand Studios is all about giving back. I love that my little articles will be a part of something SOOO much bigger. Books for kids. I will cry just thinking about it. My teacher heart is all about kiddos having EVERY opportunity to read…and have their OWN BOOKS! Love this! Love DEMAND MEDIA STUDIOS!!
