Welcome to the 30 Poems 2017! a literary fundraiser for Center for New Americans, an organization that welcomes and serves immigrants in Western Massachusetts with free English classes and a range of support services. This year, we aim to raise $50,000. Writers do their part by writing one poem each day in November. Friends and family do their part by donating to support this effort.
Dear Friends & Family - You and I have supported this great project - of helping immigrants to the US find a home and feel comfortable here - since 2011. Last year, together, we raised just about $1,000 (and 30 poems). I hope that you will continue to support me as I try to find another 30 poems hiding somewhere inside me and together we will make a positive impact on our world. If we don't do it, who will? Thanks for your friendship and your support of the Center for New Americans.
