Hello! If you're here on this page, I've likely already convinced you to donate. I shall convince you further. If you're here and you're not yet convinced to donate, then I shall stun you with my glorious convincing prowess and reveal to you the dozens of reasons why you should give me your money. I just used the word convince way to many times, for which I apologize. 

I will now start by bribing you.

If you donate 5 or more dollars, I will fold you a custom origami dragon. If you donate 10 or more dollars, I'll fold you three, or two cute little tiny ones which are harder to fold but very adorable. I don't suggest this route if you often lose or crush things, like me. If you donate 20 or more dollars, then I'll write and dedicate a short story to you. If you're some crazy donating fundraiser fanatic and donate some untold sum of money, say 40 or more dollars, I will fold you an army of origami dragons or watercolor a painting for you. I hope that this sufficiently bribed you.

Note: I might not get all this to you very quickly, because I have a lot of hard classes and therefore have a lot of hard homework and not much free time. I will, however, do my absolute best! Also, when I say for example 10 or more dollars will earn you three origami dragons and 20 will earn you a short story, you can't have both. Donating 20 qualifies you for a short story and origami dragons, but you will have to choose between them. This is reading quite like one of the things that one of the car dealers on the radio says too fast to hear, so I'll cut it off now.

Now that I've bedazzled you with promises of material goods, I will tell you what this money actually goes toward. It goes toward proving financial support so girls who don't have enough money for tuition can still go to this beautiful, wonderful, incredible school. It goes toward supporting all the awesome clubs, like the robotics club, sci-fi fantasy club, and novel club. It goes toward a really amazing school that supports young women like me to find who we want to be and learn to be the best versions of ourselves. I absolutely love my school, and it would mean a lot if you decided to give even one or two dollars to my fundraiser! You don't have to donate a whole bunch, but having your support is a gift.

Thank you for (hopefully) donating and reading through this novella.

Love, Claire J. Hamilton
