Donating to NaNoWriMo
Have you noticed that some people have yellow halos in the corner of their pictures? You, too, can have one if you donate to NaNoWriMo.
But, no, you don't have to donate to participate. There is no entrance fee for NaNoWriMo.
NaNoWriMo and its classroom-based Young Writers Program are organized by a small Berkeley-based nonprofit called the Office of Letters and Light. Together, the two programs cost nearly $1 million to put on each year. If you wish to help out, please consider making a donation to the Office of Letters and Light. You can contribute via credit card and PayPal at
http://store.lettersandlight.org, and also find information there on donating by check. According to HQ, donors get great NaNoWriMo thank-you gifts and dramatically increased noveling karma, which is why it makes sense to donate early.
You can even donate on behalf of someone else if you like. Which means that you can give someone a yellow halo. I think it's time I gave Barry (FinBarrMcG) his.
Are we doing the book drive again, this year? I know we did it two years ago, and I've been holding onto books, just in case. ;)
Do not be satisfied with the stories that come before you. Unfold your own myth. Rumi
