the Mighty Pens
Where we use our passion for writing to help others
2020 has been quite a year. 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 will 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!
This year, we’re hoping to raise $10,000 for Every Mother Counts, a charity that works to make pregnancy and birth safe for all women.
Believe it or not, maternal death is still a huge problem in the US and around the world. Sooz almost died in childbirth this year — and she only survived because she happened to be at a great hospital with the best resources. Not all women are so lucky.
With The Mighty Pens, we will not only raise money for a great cause, but we’ll encourages writers (like Kat and Sooz), to finish their books!
