Help Haiti with Your Writing and Art!

Postby Julissa Holly Fowl » Sat Feb 20, 2010 3:31 pm

Greetings, AFC! As you can tell by my sig and username, I'm Julissa, a moderator over at FanGathering.
My dear friends at FG rallied amazingly when I asked for their help on this, and I'm hoping you guys and girls will do the same.
Since I am rather pressed for time, I'm going to copy-pasta what I wrote over there.

I'm going to put together a collection of poetry and artwork about the Haiti earthquake, get it printed as little booklets, and sell them to raise money. The proceeds will be split between Mercy Corps and the Red Cross.
To submit your stuff, send it to me at julissaholly(at)gmail(.)com, with the subject "Helping Haiti." Send text-based stuff as a .rtf or .txt file, and artwork as .png, .jpg, or .gif files. Please send each thing as a seperate attatchment, but as one email.
You can send as many things as you like, but please proofread and/or have someone beta all writing.
Thank you!

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to email me, okay?

Sounds pretty cool! Does the story/poem necessarily have to deal with the earthquake itself? Or can it deal with anything related to Haiti at the moment?

I do not exactly see how this will get cash flowing into Haiti, it will show good will but I do not see a trickle of money pouring from it.

It's the same reason that you put money in charity cans. It seems like a small contribution- but if everyone puts their penny change in a charity can then you can help alot.

Yes, it will show you all care for the incident, but where's the money for them? Unless you're going to draw cash. :P

Read the thread again and maybe you'll see Arty1995 - she sells them, people pay. Tiny amount of money, but if everyone gives a small amount of money then it amounts to something big.

Thanks so much for your help, everyone! You guys and girls ROCK!

As long as it's related to Haiti in some way, it's good. :)

Couldn't have said it better myself. ;)

Exactly. And since the Portland Red Cross is going to blog about it and Tweet about it to their 3,751 followers, there's going to be plenty of people buying 'em. ;)

Since my time on the Net is quickly dwindling, I must leave you here. It was wonderful talkin' with y'all! Thanks so much for your help!

Love from
Julissa

Thanks very much, Voldy!
I've already got 15 pages of stuff, and I'm setting the limit at 20, so be quick, everyone! If yours doesn't get into this one, if I do a sequel, it'll be in there, I promise. :laughing:

Are you still collecting or is it filled up now?
