PostSubject: Looking for authors   Sat May 29, 2010 8:13 am

Dear all authors,

I am a 13 year old boy who founded SmileKIDS
foundation currently SmileKIDS Foundation is taking on a BIG project!
The project is called "W4C:Write 4 change"
W4C
is a program started by kids
for kids, this program allows a child to reach out to the
unfortunate by just writing! You might be wondering how? At the end of
the program out of the ten (10) kids we picked, we pick 5″ and make a BOOK!
It would have Five Stories which are Four chapter each.The book would
be published for free and 40% of the money goes to the publisher and 60%
goes to SmileKIDS Foundation for building a new shelter in
Nairobi, Kenya, AFRICA.
I am email you asking you
you can be the "author" the gives the children advice on what they
submitted to you
. Below is how the program will work:

  • We
    will pick 10 students (Grade 4+ )
  • The 10 Students will
    work with us for 4(four) months.
  • Each month, one(1) chapter will
    be written. 10,000 words MAX for
    every chapter!
  • But the students will submit 2,500 words every
    week
  • Students will get feedback back from the author, students SHOULD


    take the advice and fix there work.
  • Students will
    continue sending 2,500 words a week to the author for
    the next 4(four) months.This program starts June 5th/10 and ends
    October 5th/10

  • The following
    week(October 5th/10 to October
    12th/10 they will fix up there four (4) Chapters and have a family
    member
    or someone proof-read it for them.

I know you are a very busy person, but this is for a GREAT CAUSE!

I guess SmileKid forgot to post his link.

I looked it up and here's the writing project:

Sounds like a couple of kids trying to make a difference.

Love it!

Okay...like on the show, "Are you as smart as a 5th grader," Guess not. Can you prove what you are saying is true? In the 1960 this was a door to door con game. Give me a phone number I can check out.

My math is pretty good. The number of words add up to 200,000. That is about an 800 page book. Your going to print these books free?

I RED FLAG THIS ONE.

Who knows?

This email is from a year and half ago. According to the content, the project ended over a year ago.

When I posted that link it was working and the information agreed with the message.

Whether or not it was a legit cause, I don't know. Either way, the project was not ongoing.
