30 Poems in November

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 30%20poems%20logodonations and pledges I’m more than halfway to my goal of $1000.

So far I’ve written a few dogs but also have tried my hand at a form called a quatern, and some tribute poems, including one for the children who were murdered in Sandy Hook. I’ve wanted to write that poem for a long time but couldn’t find a way to it, so I’m grateful for the impetus this challenge has given me.
I hope you’ll consider making a donation to this excellent organization. you can sponsor me through November, still lots of time! See below for a link to my page.

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!
