Help Haiti with Fangathering’s own Julissa Holly Fowl

Recently a record breaking earthquake hit the coast of Haiti, killing many and displacing the lives of others. Doctors and supplies are in high demand. I’m sure that you’ve heard all about it on the news, but there’s something you can do about it.

Our lovely and generous mod Julissa Holly Fowl has been doing a lot to help out on Haiti. She is putting together collections of writing and art that she will sell, donating all of the profits to relief efforts in Haiti.

She has even been featured in the Red Cross’s blog here.

Through Twitter and online forums, especially the FanGathering one, she is helping spread the word about Haiti and putting forth great effort to assist those in need.

Here are her instructions:

Help the Red Cross and Mercy Corps’s Haiti relief efforts with your writing and art!! I know there are some fabulous artists and writers here, so take this under consideration if you have the time, okay?

I’m going to put together a collection of poetry and artwork about the Haiti earthquake, get it printed as little booklets, and sell them as a fundraiser. The proceeds will be split between Mercy Corps and the Red Cross.

If you want to help, send your artwork or poetry to me at julissaholly@gmail(.)com, with the subject “Helping Haiti.” Send text-based stuff as a .rtf or .txt file, and artwork as .png, .jpg, or .gif files. Please send each thing as a separate attachment, but as one email.

You can send as many things as you like, but please proofread and/or have someone betaread all writing.

A good example of what I’m looking for is Alanna-Lena Zelen’s poem Devastation.

Thank you!

So send in your artwork and writing! Help the people of Haiti! From what I’ve heard she has finished taking submissions for her first booklet, but if she gets enough she might do a second one. When she has more information on purchasing the booklets we will post it here. πŸ™‚ One of these will be great to have, and will help a good cause!

And great job, Julissa, for doing this. You’re an inspiration and it’s great to know that we can do something to ease the tragedy.

    I used my friends email adress and she doesn’t have internet access any more. How can I get my poem to you?

    Do you have a forum account? You could post it there and PM me the link, like others have done. Or you could create a free email address using Gmail? Provided that your parents allow it, of course. ;)Thanks for your interest!

    It’s very complicated..could I just write it in a comment here, and you copy and paste it?
    I haven’t actually written it yet, I still need to plan, bear in mind.

    If you did that, I’d probably have to delete the comment after I copy-pasta’d it (otherwise I’d get in trouble) but go ahead! πŸ˜€ Thanks so much!

  11. Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I wish to put

    I say… I procrastinate alot and under no circumstances appear to get
    something done.
