… and by “prime,” I mean the number 43. Because that’s how many years I will have been alive, today. Crazy, right?
I’m not big on birthdays, but I AM big on supporting the wonderful people who work for the greater good. So in lieu of giving me a gift … or tweeting me … or posting on my Facebook page … please consider donating to Writers In The Schools on my behalf! (Please leave a note in the “Comment” area, so I know whom to thank! 🙂 )
WITS is a change agent for creativity and literacy in Houston. In 32 years, WITS has impacted the education of more than 400,000 children. By supporting WITS you are investing in the largest literary arts organization in Texas and a proven model for quality arts education. WITS professional authors — like Andrew! — teach the craft of writing, digital literacy and critical thinking in schools and community classrooms, helping students and educators explore literacy in innovative ways that close gaps in achievement and opportunity while fueling lifelong learning.
You can give a one-time donation, but a recurring gift to WITS will make a lasting difference. Please consider setting up a convenient monthly donation of any amount that can be paid over time through your credit card.
- $10 could send an underserved child on an inspiring field trip each month
- $15 could publish classroom anthologies for two children each month
- $25 could provide classroom supplies for five children each month
Many companies also have matching gift programs that can double or triple your impact. If you’d like to make an even greater impact on #STEAM education and literacy in Houston, please contact WITS Development team — ask for Kate! — at 713.523.3877 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
