THE STORY:

Poetry Pals wrote -

Poetry Pals is a youth arts organization that uses creative expression to promote understanding, cooperation and peace in our multi-faith society. We bring together kids from faith-based schools and use written and spoken word, visual arts and rhythm to teach them about each other's faiths.

Some of our schools need financial assistance to fund the program. Our goal of $5,000 by December will cover the shortfall this year, so that we can deliver our unique and powerful programming to our partner schools.

Your donation of $150 will provide one educator for one session at one school. For each $150 donation, one of our poet educators will craft a custom poem for you, based on your specifications.

“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other.” - Martin Luther King

Poetry Pals has provided a forum for more than 2,000 kids to communicate with each other. We have our biggest program ever planned for this year. Please help us continue our mission.

Poetry Pals is fiscally sponsored by Changing Worlds, a Chicago based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
