As you may have seen back in May, I made a pledge to donate a portion of the profits from the sale of our notebooks to 826LA, to support their after-school tutoring program here in LA. $1 from the sale of each notebook will go directly to 826LA, and I’ve decided to extend that pledge an extra month, and continue the fundraiser through July!
This subject is close to my heart. I loved creative writing as a student, and I was lucky enough to have some fantastic teachers who nurtured my interest in expressing myself through writing. The tutors and volunteers at 826LA are doing more than just teaching valuable literacy skills to kids — they are also inspiring students to develop a lifelong love of reading and writing, and planting the seeds for the next generation of creative storytellers.
I hope to raise as much money as possible to help 826LA in their mission of supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills. 826LA is doing some amazing things here in LA, including some great summer programs to keep kids engaged in learning, working with volunteers on their writing, verbal, and reading skills. Visit their site to learn more about 826LA, and see the benefits of their after-school tutoring program for LA youth!
Visit the Cotton & Flax shop to grab a set of notebooks — through July, your purchase will support 826LA, and all they’re doing for LA youth!
