If you're a writer and looking to support a good cause that's focused on giving others (namely teens) the opportunity to learn and become better writers, you'll want to check out WriteGirl's Get Inspired Fundraiser.

Launched nearly 13 years ago, WriteGirl is a foundation that focuses on teenage girls who do not have access to creative writing or mentoring programs. The group brings the energy and skill set of professional female writers to these young writers in an attempt to give them all the help they can in achieving their goals of becoming better writers (and getting them in to college).

By donating to the Get Inspired campaign, you'll receive writing prompts and award-winning anthologies from the teen girls at WriteGirl. Plus, you'll be supporting a great cause.

For more information, visit WriteGirl.org. The fundraiser ends September 4 September 16, 2014.
