Blazing Laptops Write-a-thon 2016 is our annual fundraising event for your favorite literary nonprofit: San Diego Writers, Ink. It’s a time to get together to write, raise money for a good cause, write, enjoy time with other writers, and WRITE.
We provide the space, writing prompts for those who want them, plus snacks and fun activities. The participants write! All participants must either be sponsored for the minimum of $150 or pay that amount themselves in order to be a part of the experience. The writers in the Write-a-Thon get a certificate for their attendance, plus the fun of the day itself. Incentives and prizes are given for people who raise the most money for SDWI.
Everyone is invited to participate. Minimum sponsorship is $150 in pledges which can come in all amounts, $5 to $500 or more. You can even sponsor yourself. Your personal information will be stored securely and we’ll never share it, rent it, or sell it.
HOW TO REGISTER: CLICK ON THE LINK AND THEN CHOOSE BECOME A FUNDRAISER FROM THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER. If you raise over $150 (or pay it yourself), you can participate on the big day during the writing marathon.
HOW TO DONATE: If you wish to donate but don’t want to participate in the marathon, you can simply support the fundraising of one of the people who has registered. SDWI gets the donation and that writer knows you supported them. Some writers offer incentives and other offers to get people to donate to their fundraising page for SDWI.
What do the writers get at the marathon? We’ll provide snacks (candy, nuts, and the like) and beverages (coffee, tea, water) to keep our participants going on the marathon day. There will also be a lunch break and we’ll provide the lunch. We’ll have raffles, silent auction,and other activities throughout the day. It’s fun and everyone there has supported SDWI by raising donations for them. And most important, they have a day to concentrate on their writing while supporting the writing community.
