If you're going a little stir-crazy with all the snow out there, put your time and your pencil to good use by joining our 2015 Write-A-Thon!
From February 23rd through April 16th, volunteers, students, journalists, bloggers--anyone who can hold a pencil--will come together to raise $20,000 in support of our free youth programs. Writers set a page goal, seek pledges per page or flat rate donations, and write anything they want for six weeks (from dive-bar menu sestinas to space travel postcard haikus), all while raising funds for 826 Boston. Since all writing is done from the comfort of your own home, you don't have to live in Boston to participate--just love 826 Boston and help spread the word!
We'll host a series of events, from write-ins and live readings to concerts and dance parties, to celebrate participants' writing and their hard work fundraising for 826 Boston.
If you want to help shape these events or lead the charge in fundraising, join the events committee by dropping us a line. Email the event coordinator, Kristen Evans, to find out more or to join our team.
Don't forget to register for the event today! Registration is open for the entire event.
Make a donation to a participant and support 826 Boston's free youth writing programs.

Thank you for supporting 826 Boston during our end-of-year campaign. With your help, we raised more than $71,000 in support of our free youth writing programs. And we're still tallying your gifts, which leads us to believe we've blown our $45,000 goal right out of the water.
We couldn't support the literacy needs of more than 2,000 students across Boston without you. Thanks once again for your support!
