Charity Week

Charity Week
Let’s get involved!

So we’ve been talking about it for a while and now it’s finally here! This week on You Write What?! It’s CHARITY WEEK! We’re really excited about this! Personally, I’m excited because charity is a big thing with me AND it’s my first time running the blog on my own.

Anyway, we’ve chosen six charities to showcase this week. They are:
Fandom for No Kid Hungry
Fandoms for Special Olympics
Fandoms for Autism
Alex’s Lemonade Stand
Fandom Against Juvenile Diabetes
Fandom for Cancer
And their links can be found at the top of the page.

One of the main reasons we chose to do a charity week was to showcase what fandoms were doing to give back to others. As a society, I feel it’s important that we give back because not only does it make us feel good, but it helps those who need it. Passing it off and saying ‘somebody else will take care of it’ doesn’t work well and when we can step up and help others we should.

Fanfiction has grown a lot over the years and we have a voice. We are all artists, all people who give what we can to our craft, and we all have people who enjoy our work. We have people we can reach out to, talk to and tell about the things we enjoy, the things we hate and the things we feel strongly about. If every person in the fanfiction world told one other person about a cause like the ones listed above, we could make a huge difference.

So I’m telling you about them! And I hope you guys will turn around and at least share them with someone else. Of course, all these charities accept donations and there is more information on each of their pages. Just click the link and go for it!

Let’s get involved!


If you would really like to get involved, step up to the plate and not only education but DEFEND that child with autism. Read about Akian and sign the petition.
