Contribute to MANA's Blog Continuous Short Story for Young Writers and Help Forgotten Harvest During the COVID-19 Economic Crisis


Are you a parent looking for a creative outlet for your child? Do you have a child under 13 years old who enjoys writing? If so, (MANA) is providing an opportunity for your child to help others in need.

The impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has jeopardized the health, safety, and employment of many people who now find themselves in need of food. 

Forgotten Harvest, a nonprofit food rescue organization, has been working with government, nonprofit, and community organizations to deliver food to people in need. Forgotten Harvest delivers 138,000 pounds of surplus food per day to local charities six days a week.

MANA and its parent company, Robbie Dean Press, have supported charitable projects over the years through posts on "MANA's Blog Continuous Short Story." Through the latest short story project, MANA plans to donate to Forgotten Harvest, BUT AT NO COST to those who contribute to the short story. 


This is how "MANA's Blog Continuous Short Story" works: 

1. The photo at the top of this blog post serves as a writing prompt. The first person to post can write five sentences or more based on the prompt. 

2. The next writer adds to the story of the first post. After that, every writer adds to the story of the previous writer.

3. For every 10 posts of five sentences or more, MANA will donate $10 to Forgotten Harvest (up to $500).

This activity is twofold:

• It provides money for Forgotten Harvest to provide food for people in need. 

• It provides an opportunity for your child (and you, too!) to be part of a creative experience. 

Have your child post his or her contributions in the comment box below. Writers will be able to contribute as many times as they would like. 

Tell other parents about MANA's project or have your child tell his or her friends so everyone can help families get through these uncertain times. 

To double the fun—and the donations—MANA also has a continuous short story for teen writers (13 years old and older) and adults.  

So, if you have older children or if you enjoy writing, then check out the blog post: "Contribute to MANA's Blog Continuous Short Story and Help Forgotten Harvest During the COVID-19 Economic Crisis."

MANA is giving people of all ages another way to be a positive part of the challenge of COVID-19!

  1. Wow! I see people holding the US flag. There are children like me. This is really something to see. As I stand above with my parents, I feel proud. I am proud to be an American. Oh, I see my Mom and Dad want to go. I wonder where we go next?
