Writing For A Cause

Most writers want their words to have an impact and mean something to someone well, there is an organization named, CausePub, that brings together writers one cause at a time.

The cause, Blood:Water Mission. This organization raises money to bring clean water to parts of Africa that suffer with Hiv/Aids and desperately need clean water sources.

Here's how it works. Writers/ non writers submit a story and then it gets voted up. The stories with the most votes get included in the book, Couch Rebels. Half of the profits from the book are going directly to Blood:Water Mission.

For every book sold, Blood:Water Mission, will be able to provide three people with clean water for one year.
If you want to include a story of your own you have until the 20th to do so. And if you do or already did make sure you leave me a comment so that I can read and vote for yours.

The great thing about the voting process is that you can vote for as many stories as you want, but only once for each story. There are so many good ones!!

I finally worked up the courage and submitted my own, you can find my submission here, and if you want to vote for it that would be just awesome!:)

Writing for a cause, doesn't get much better than that, no?

So, what's your story? What are you waiting for?! Go tell it!
