**UPDATE: As of May 25, you can schedule your gift in advance of Do More 24. Save yourself the trouble later and donate now to 826DC’s campaign**
Every day across our programs, we see promise in our students. They envision new worlds (made of candy) and write powerful poetry about the rapidly changing city they call home. Despite their passion for writing, many will face challenges and barriers to success. One thing we can do with your support is provide the individualized attention they need to take their writing to new levels, allowing them to develop lifelong skills.
Do More 24 is a 24-hour fundraiser for nonprofits in our region hosted by United Way NCA. This year it falls on Thursday, June 8. Our goal? To establish a new “Young Writer in Residence” program at 826DC. Your donations during Do More 24 will support individualized mentorship opportunities for a promising young writer in our community, like Chidinma (below) and other students whose work with us was recently featured on NPR.
So how can you help?
- 1. Schedule your gift on or before the big day (June 8) at this link.

- 3. Attend our Do More 24 kickoff event with Story District on June 7
