Write for a Cause


Demand Media Studios is thrilled to announce a special holiday edition of their popular Write for a Cause book drive for children in need.

Working with FirstBook.org and HarperCollins Publishing House, Demand Media’s community of freelance writers and copy editors are equipping hundreds of childhood literacy programs across the country with age-appropriate books this coming year, and they need your help!

Taking Part is Easy: For every eight articles written and approved by their entire community from December 1 through December 15 two things will happen:

1) Demand Media will fund one new book that FirstBook.org will distribute to children in need

2) HarperCollins will match their total book donation, doubling the number of books
Be a Part of Something Big: In the previous three Write for a Cause campaigns, Demand Media’s dedicated writers and editors together donated more than 41,000 new children’s books. Combining Demand Media’s philanthropic partnerships with the creative talents of their creators, this edition of Write for a Cause promises to be the most successful one to date. To learn more about those on the receiving end of the book drive, check out this video.

Have Fun Doing It: To make sure everyone wins by Writing for a Cause, Demand Media will be awarding daily prizes to participants. Past prizes have included the Complete New Yorker Gift Set, autographed editions of popular books and recognition in widely distributed press releases. Every article written this holiday season goes toward raising books and is a chance to win great prizes. Make sure to visit the Write for a Cause facebook page for daily updates.

We urge you to pledge some of your time and creativity this December and make a difference in the lives of thousands of underserved children.
