When we learned that a group of writers were trying to raise ~$15,000 to cover expenses (for flights, childcare, hotel, and more) so that they might attend the WU Un-Conference, we were more than happy to help spread the word of their initiatives. Their first big fundraiser, the sale of a writing-resource bundle worth $200, ends today. (There is still time to check that out, HERE.)
Though the fundraiser has done well for them, they’ve raised only half of the money they had hoped they would.
[pullquote]Though the writers in question wish to remain anonymous, we want to be clear that no members of this group are WU contributors; rather, they are a part of the larger WU community. All profits from your purchase of a Limited-Edition WU T-shirt goes to benefit these writers.[/pullquote]
Several WU’ers have created, or are in the process of creating, fundraisers to benefit the cause. WU community member Mike Swift created a Writer Unboxed hat fundraiser (check it out, HERE), which sparked the idea for us: Limited Edition WU T-shirts, with all profits going to the group trying to raise money.
A few obsessive days later, we landed on a design we love. Aren’t they gorgeous? We think so, anyway. The red shirt is sized for ladies, and the gray is a unisex fit.
This particular design will never be available again, so we hope you’ll order one while they are, through mid-September. At $23, the price is right, and the cause is more than worthy.
