UPDATE: I reached my goal of $1000!
Thank you all SO much
for helping me support this excellent organization!
We’re 9 days into 30 Poems in November fundraiser for the Center for New Americans, and thanks to a bunch of very generous donations and pledges I’m more than halfway to my goal of $1000.
Here’s the info, in case you missed it, first time around…
I’m once again raising funds for the Center for New Americans.
That means I’m going to write a poem a day for 30 days. You can help me support this excellent organization doing work on behalf of immigrants and new Americans by becoming a sponsor.
As Northampton’s Poet Laureate, I want to do as much as I can to shine light on the positive contributions immigrants make to our communities, and to support the organizations that help make that possible.
This year my goal is to raise $1,000 for CNA. As an incentive, for every donation of $50 or more, I’ll write a poem using a prompt you provide. For donations of $100 or more, I’ll put your name, or the name of someone else you designate, into a poem. Sounds good, right? (Keep it clean, folks!)

Thanks so much for your support! Any amount is appreciated, and please help spread the word!
