Poems for Peace
Organized by: Daniel Fortier
Welcome to Poems for Peace, a fundraiser hosted by Clemson Junior Daniel Fortier in honor of National Mental Illness Month (May). 50% of all donations will be going to the DBSA (Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance). The other half goes to Clemson University's FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes). Descriptions of each organization can be found in my video and Facebook status!
If you have been directed to this page from my video or Facebook status, this is where donations are collected. Donating is completely optional, and whether or not you donate, be sure to send me a Facebook message or e-mail regarding your poem! If you want to donate but do not want a poem, that's okay! Don't be shy in asking for one, you're not burdening me at all! Also, ALL information you give me to help write your poem stays between us. I will NOT share anything you tell me with ANYONE.
Donations through CrowdRise have fees that are an optional charge, as in, the amount being charged as a fee can either be taken from your donation OR paid seperately, which will allow 100% of your donated amount to be contributed.
There is also a $10 minimum for donations. I'm so sorry for this! There is nothing I can do to change it; website policy I guess. If you want to donate an amount under $10 and cannot donate any more, contact me, and we'll figure something out! Thanks for your understanding.
I'm working on finding out if tax exemptions are applicable to your donation. While Clemson FCA does not fall under 501C3, DBSA does, and upon donating directly to them with the money we raise, I can probably get the exemptions there. I will update the Poems for Peace donors as I get more information about this.
If you have any questions about Poems for Peace, feel free to send a message to me on Facebook, through e-mail, or through CrowdRise!
Thank you so much for your interest in Poems for Peace!
