Feel The Draft

The NextDraft community made a pretty good showing for itself yesterday as we raised nearly $10,000 for the new 826 Valencia center in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood. In short, the organization is taking a liquor store on a corner riddled with crime and turning it into a magical space for kids to think, learn and write. It feels good to support a cause, especially when you have someone who can vouch for the organization. I’m on the board of 826 and I’ve seen the difference they make in kids’ lives. So help us out with the last bit of money we need to finish the project. (And remember, our friends at Twitter are currently matching your donations.)

+ And if you’re in the Bay Area, there are a handful of tickets left for our BookEater’s Bash at the Warfield which will feature good food, live music, Dave Eggers interviewing Mindy Kaling, and kids doing cute and inspirational stuff.
