Crowdfunder launch - Keeping The Wee Gaitherin free and inclusive

Dear Wee Gaitherers,

We're thrilled to announce an opportunity for you to join us in supporting The Wee Gaitherin Poetry Festival. We've launched a crowdfunding campaign to support our beloved event dedicated to celebrating poetry in all its forms. Our goal is to raise funds to ensure that this festival remains free and accessible to everyone, continuing to foster a space where poets and poetry thrives and flourishes.

As a small charity, The Wee Gaitherin relies on individual donations, grants from trusts, local funding bodies and, more recently, funding through some local business sponsorship. However, as with any endeavour, expenses add up quickly, and that's why we've launched a crowdfunding campaign.

By contributing to our crowdfunder, you're not just supporting a festival—you're investing in a community dedicated to making poetry a vibrant and inclusive art form. Over the years, we've seen first hand the transformative power of poetry to uplift, inspire, and unite us. Your donation, no matter how big or small, will directly impact our ability to keep The Wee Gaitherin free and accessible to everyone.

Here's how you can get involved:

Donate: Visit our crowdfunding page to make a donation today. Every penny counts, and your contribution will make a significant difference in keeping the festival alive.
Spread the Word: Share our crowdfunding campaign with your friends, family, and social networks. Help us reach as many people as possible!
Attend the Festival: Save the date for The Wee Gaitherin Poetry Festival and join us in person.. Your presence and participation are invaluable in making the event a success.

Together, we can ensure that The Wee Gaitherin Poetry Festival continues to be a celebration of creativity, connection, and community for years to come. Thank you for your support, and we look forward to welcoming you to the festival!

Warmest wishes,

Kate Benzie
