2013 Writing Marathon + Donation Day!

Writing_Marathon_851x315_1Today November 9th is Writing Marathon and  Donation Day!

Join WriMos around the world virtually and in-person for an all-day NaNoWriMo Writing Marathon!

If you can’t go to any in-person events, NaNoWriMo invites you to check out their livestreaming from NaNo HQ and join #NaNoThon on Twitter for updates, challenges, and giveaways.

Even though today is Writing Marathon Day, it is also Donation Day! Each Donation Day, NaNoWriMo has a goal of raising $50,000 by the end of the day (6am – midnight PST). This $60,000 goes towards the $1.2 million fundraising goal, which will help keep NaNoWriMo possible for 300,000+ aspiring writers around the world for another year.

Donate now and join the Donation Day fun!

There will be hourly (and amazing grand) prizes announced throughout the day. So follow NaNoWriMo’s Twitter account.

Hourly prizes includes awesome stuff like:

  • Kindle Paperwhites
  • Personal pep talks from founder Chris Baty
  • An owl from Tavia’s epic owl collection
  • and More!

Please please consider donating to NaNoWriMo, because NaNoWriMo is brought to you by YOU! If it were not for the generous donations of participants, we would not have such wonderful opportunities of literary abandon each year.

Additionally, for the Los Angels Region, Donation Day is also a great opportunity for you to earn your halo and qualify for the NaNo Los Angeles Halo Raffle that will happen at the end of the month at our TGIO Party.

If you haven’t donated already, please consider donating now. Not only will your donation help NaNoWriMo, but it will give you a chance to win awesome prizes and be a part of something that changes lives.

We appreciate everyone’s support and thank you all for donating!

No Word Count Left Behind!
