A Worthy Cause Needs Help

The American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA's) Writers Emergency Assistance Fund (WEAF) needs help. WEAF helps professional writers who are suffering financial hardship due to illness, disability, natural disaster or an extraordinary crisis.
This is a very worthy cause - applicants need not even be ASJA members.
Just since I've been a member of ASJA, I've seen the emergency assistance fund help so many writers who have suffered major (and financially devastating) illnesses, or who have been the victims of disasters.
If you're in a position to make a tax-deductible contribution to WEAF, please either send a check made out to "The ASJA Charitable Trust" to:
1501 Broadway
Suite 302
New York, NY 10036
or use the online donation form at
Remember, writers, you never know when you or a friend just might need their help one day. This is what I love about being a freelancer today -
Writers are such a generous and giving bunch willing to help each other!
