FAQ: Why do donors need to register for the write-a-thon?
There have been some recent comments made in regard to registration being required to donate to specific writers.
We ask sponsors to establish an account so we can run the Write-a-Thon with fewer volunteers. When sponsors fill out the registration form, it allows us to properly credit their donation to the individual writer and to generate thank you and tax acknowledgement letters automatically rather than manually. Registering — a small act of additional generosity we depend upon — allows us to run the Write-a-Thon without hiring employees. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We understand, however, that the registration is confusing and we are working to revamp this page to make it easier to use.
