you are very lovely people

This morning I went to the bank and transferred the money raised from the 100 Poem Challenge to EEC International. The total raised was £4250 [which is €5100/$6740], and will go to the research centres looking for a cure for the degenerative eye disease associated with EEC Syndrome. Hurray!

So, THANK YOU so much to everyone who donated, bought a postcard or a pamphlet [or both!], and to those who tweeted about the project, and who sent encouraging messages during the weekend of the poetry writing itself. If you want to read the poems, they're still online over here if you scroll down.

Y'all are lovely. Thank you. xxxxxx


  1. Wish I could give you a real one but here's a virtual hug - you're fantastic!

  2. That is a staggering amount of money to raise. Well done to you, Jen, for coming up with the idea and writing all those poems over one weekend!
