Ellen Yaffa's Fundraising Page
My work is not available on "Amazon." It's not in "Poets and Writers," nor "The Sun" magazine (it was, actually, once). But I remain committed to the power of the written word, to the stories we all have inside us, to the beauty of language, and to the importance of a community honoring the process of writing and how to develop the art. That's why I'm back at it this year, participating in San Diego Writers Ink's Blazing Laptop annual fundraiser. I'll be there, pumped up by the buzz in the room, with other writers bent over laptops and notebooks, creating something wonderful, or at least, getting some words on the page and exploring the recesses of memory and imagination.
While I have rotated off the Board of Directors of San Diego Writers Ink, I am still fully committed to its mission and role. I still attend the Thursday Writers group-- love the challenge of spontaneous writing to a random prompt.
I've sent a note just like this to most of you for the past several years, and I hope you will consider sponsoring me again this year.
With many thanks,

WHAT: 9th Annual Blazing Laptops Write-a-thon

WHEN:  Sunday, May 22,  9:00am-4:00pm

WHERE: Liberty Station: Ink Spot and Inspirations Gallery

Blazing Laptops Write-a-thon 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.  Support a writer and the writing community at the same time by donating in the name of a writer who has a fundraising page here!
