Kate Schapira Makes It Rain for Libraries

By Harriet Staff

This is great. Head over to Kate Schapira’s blog and check out her Make It Rain project.

She writes:

The Make it Rain Project, a poetic effort to gather funds for public libraries in regions hit hard by this summer’s drought, begins today! At least five libraries will benefit. I’ll post a Rain Dance poem and the funding total every day for each library until I reach or surpass my funding goal of $200 for that library. Please make a small donation and spread the word.

She also states:

Donors will receive a chapbook containing all the rain dances — PayPal, when you donate, should ask you for a shipping address, but if it doesn’t, please email me at my gmail address, publiclycomplex, to let me know where I should send your book. (Email me there if you have questions, too.) I will seed the cloud with $50.00. Please help to bring it up to at least $200.

To read the first poem, and donate, head here.
