Help DTES Kids In Need Through The Amazing “Writer’s Exchange”

6949414070_fecc2ec918_z

The Writer’s Exchange makes literacy exciting and accessible for inner-city kids through free mentoring and creative writing projects. We have seen first hand how they work to benefit the lives of local children, but they can’t do it without a lot of help. To date, 17 generous people have contributed $50,800 towards their $100,000 goal for the 2014/15 school year, which is to say that they’re already halfway there.

Consider what your donation could do:

– $2000 supports a class of inner-city kids and their teacher as they create a publishing project with the Writers’ Exchange.

– $1000 runs a fun summer literacy program for 12 at-risk kids, tailored for their needs.

– $500 pays for a month’s worth of healthy snacks for the 85 kids in the Writers’ Room after-school program.

– $250 covers essential writing and art supplies for a four-month workshop for 15 kids.

– $100 provides a safe space for one child to receive after-school literacy support and homework help for one month.

– $50 helps buy books that inspire kids to love reading.

We’ve still got 15 days to meet our $100,000 goal before our fall programs begin, so please take a few minutes now to join the amazing group of people who make reading and writing fun for inner-city kids, and donate today!
