the Mighty Pens
Where we use our passion for writing to help others
Somehow, the world continues to unravel…but National Novel Writing Month is here to empower writers and remind us that even in the darkest of days, we get to decide what to do with our time.
We get to create and give back.
Writers who sign up for The Mighty Pens ask friends, family, colleagues, etc. to donate money when they hit specified word goals. Kind of like how runners get each mile of a race sponsored, we’re just working with words instead!
In 2021, we raised money for WeForest and wrote over 700,000 words.
This year, we’re fundraising for Direct Relief. This charity works to equip health professionals in resource-poor communities to meet the challenges of diagnosing and caring for people in need. Additionally, when disasters strike, Direct Relief responds fast, effectively, and efficiently to get medical resources where they need to be to save lives
With The Mighty Pens, we will not only raise money for this great, urgent cause, but we’ll encourage writers (like Kat and Sooz), to finish their books!
