Rebecca Macijeski's Fundraiser

Together, my poems and your donations can make a difference.

Help me meet my goal. Your donation helps poems find their way to readers who need them.

I'm excited to write new stuff all month, and to have you read along with me. I'm doing this for the poems, for Tupelo, and for your donations. Here are some incentives to sweeten the pot:

(Please be sure to include relevant information in your donation comments--word, emotion, and/or mailing address.)

-$5 A five dollar donation buys you the chance to provide a word that I must use in one of my 30/30 poems. Try to keep this PG, please and thanks. :)

-$10 A ten dollar donation lets you choose the emotion or tone of one of my 30/30 poems. Want to see me write a sad poem? A wistful poem? A friendly poem? Some other kind of poem? Here's your chance to make it so.

-$30 A thirty dollar donation gets you a hand-written copy of a poem of your choice from my 30/30 run mailed directly to you. I will also sign it and include a personalized surprise. Yay!

-$40 A forty dollar donation gets you all three--a word, an emotion, a hand-written and signed poem. How awesome!

Any donation amount will get my personal thanks, and thanks from Tupelo. Feel free to follow me on Twitter: @RMacijeski. You can follow the project, too: @TupeloPress3030.
